All members of your family should be safely buckled in a car. This includes four legged family members! According to the USA Today, in a survey by AAA, 20% of participants admitted to letting their dog sit on their lap while driving and 31% said they were distracted by their dog in the car. This makes car rides unsafe for you, your pet, and everyone around you. In some states such as New Jersey and Hawaii it is even illegal to transport and animal without proper restraint.
Along with eliminating distractions, there are many other reasons to restrain your dog on a car ride. Just like humans, dogs can be ejected from a vehicle in the event of a crash. If your dog is in the front seat, air bags are as harmful to pets as they are to children and can cause serious harm. While some states have laws in place to protect pets in the car, for many it is up to the pet owner to keep every member of their family safe.
