Keep Your Pets Restrained While Driving, It’s The Law!

Wednesday, October 2, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

If you drive without a seat beat and get stopped you pay a  fine. If you drive with an unrestrained pet, and get stopped don’t expect to get off the hook too easy. Penalties range from $250 to $1,000 and as much as six months in jail!  Some people like to let their dogs hang their head out of the car window for fresh air but dogs and cats become projectiles in a crash! I do agree that you should keep your dog or cat in their carrier while driving. You can also buy a harness that attaches directly to the seat belt. This is a good idea and I do agree that our pets should be protected.

Now, I will always tell you my opinion. The fine amount and jail time is a bit much and another way for towns to make more money. Some states including the state that I grew up in, New Jersey implement this rule.

Remember, your pets count!
