Thanks to the compassion and forethought of a 12 year old boy from Danville named Bobby Redman, the California Highway Patrol will be partnered up with teddy bears! That’s right, you read it correctly. CHP patrol cars will be stocked with teddy bears to be given to small children involved in traffic collisions in an effort to comfort them during such a traumatic experience.
When children are separated from injured parents, the 1st responding officer is required to lock them in the backseat of the CHP vehicle while they secure the scene of the accident. These teddy bears provides comfort until the officer returns.
