Buckle Up Your Pets!

A new law is being passed in Jersey authorizing police and animal control officers to cite drivers with unrestrained animals in the car.

“Click it or ticket” no longer applies to humans alone. Failure to buckle down your dog or cat could result in fines from $250 to $1,000.

Ray Martinez, head of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, had this to say:

People actually driving with a dog or a cat on their laps. It’s not cute. It’s actually dangerous for the driver. It’s dangerous for other drivers and it’s dangerous for that pet.

In theory, I agree with this. In practice, admittedly I’m going to have to change the way I drive with my dog, as evidenced below.

That’s how my dog, Bruno, likes to spend his time in the car. Yes, I know it’s not safe, you don’t have to scold me. I try my best to make him sit on the passenger seat or on the floor, but he goes where he’s comfy. Looks like it’s time for me to head to the pet store and get a harness.
