Amie Durocher

Creative Director & CPST since 2004

Amie enjoys sharing with parents better ways to protect kids while riding in a car. She spent years teaching car seats at a local hospital and volunteering time in various child passenger safety organizations, and says… “As a mom myself, I love knowing I am helping other families avoid unnecessary tragedy due to improperly installed child safety seats.”

Our Story

Safe Ride 4 Kids was founded by Greg Durocher — a former fireman of 18 years, paramedic of 10 years and Child Passenger Safety Technician Instructor since 2001 — along with his wife, Amie — also a Child Passenger Safety Technician. Together we have more than 30 years of car seat safety experience. We found our innovative but relatively undiscovered products that solved some challenges many parents face because they were challenges we faced.

You see, we’ve been where you are — looking for solutions to various challenges of keeping our babies safe while driving and, in the case of moms-to-be, keeping yourself safe and comfortable too. By focusing on car safety for the pregnancy stage, we bring awareness to an otherwise unaddressed stage of child passenger safety. While the Tummy Shield was not available during any of our pregnancies, had it been Amie would have jumped at the chance to sit in the car more comfortably and safely.

As for the RideSafer, we were looking at buying a new car during our third pregnancy because our car with bucket seats in the back wouldn’t fit three child restraints across, when a CPST Instructor friend reminded us of the RideSafer® Travel Vest. It was a much less expensive solution — though we did eventually buy a new bigger car with four-wheel drive for the snows of Colorado. We found the RideSafer to be the perfect solution to traveling with kids and sending the kids in friends’ cars without having to move car seats around. Several months later seeing that so few fellow parents had ever heard of the RideSafer, we began our quest to spread the word and created Safe Ride 4 Kids.

Safe Ride 4 Kids became the #1 reseller/distributor (not the manufacturer) and your primary education source of the Tummy Shield and RideSafer Travel Vest. We also offer driving during pregnancy and car seat safety information and tips. Go here for a longer, more the more detailed story of Safe Ride 4 Kids.

Our Product Solutions

We aim to choose innovative products that are unique, fill a need in a new way and surpasses safety standards. We currently offer you two featured solutions for two age ranges: conception to birth and 3 to seat-belt ready.

From conception to birth we protect mom and developing baby with the crash tested Tummy Shield which redirects the lap portion of the seat belt to the upper thigh/lower pelvis. This effectively minimizes the risk that the seat belt will intrude into your pregnant tummy during a crash or sudden braking incident and it makes driving/riding in a vehicle much more comfortable for the pregnant mother.

Our solution for kids 3 and older is a convenient and legal alternative to the booster seat and the car seat. It’s great for parents who travel, need to fit 3 across, carpool, have children with special needs and several other situations. The Ride Safer Travel vest properly positions the vehicle’s seat belt on the child, lowers their center of gravity and, in the event of a crash, spreads the crash force across the vest instead of just the width of the seat belt like in a booster.
