Buckle up your dog or cat or receive a fine

One thing that a dog really loves is hanging it’s head out of the window while your driving and sniffing all of the great smells. Well if you live in good old New Jersey, there’s now a law that states that dogs and cats must in buckled up or in crates. What’s the fine? Sorry to say it’s $1,000! Yes, you read this correctly but remember you’re in New Jersey. This fine is for each offense. So if you have a dog and a cat that are not buckled in or in crates, you’ll be fined $2,000. Do I think this is a bit much? Yes I do. The first time offense fine is way too much and unfair but as I said, this is New Jersey.

I do believe that we should protect our pets and they should be secure in a crate or at least buckled in for their own safety. Most people are not used to doing this and I do think that the fine for a first offense is very unreasonable. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

Remember, your pets count!
