Think all driving distractions are a ring or beep think again. Some of them bark.
Petland Novi along with Animal protection and automobile safety officials are trying to spread the word that your pets need to be restrained while you drive!
Petland Novi is sure that you wouldn’t put your child in the car unrestrained;
In a 2010 survey by AAA, 20% of participants admitted to letting their dog sit on their lap while driving. A "staggering"
"What people have come to realize lately is that animals act like flying missiles in an impact and can not only hurt themselves but hurt their human family members, too.
State are starting to pass legislation requiring animal restraints in moving vehicles, and in some of those states laws apply only to animals riding in the exterior of the vehicle, such as the bed of a pickup, according to AAA, formerly known as the American Automobile Association.
Under some state laws officers can stop a driver they believe is improperly transporting an animal. Tickets range from $250 to $1,000 per offense, and a driver can face a disorderly person's offense under animal-cruelty laws.
Hawaii explicitly forbids drivers from holding a pet on their lap. In Arizona, Connecticut and Maine, distracted-driving laws can be used to charge drivers with pets on their laps.
In Rhode Island, Democratic state Rep. Peter Palumbo has proposed legislation to make having a dog in your lap a distracted-driving violation after a complaint from someone who witnessed a driver, whose view was blocked by a lap dog, change lanes.
"Pet restraint is a somewhat emerging issue," AAA spokeswoman Heather Hunter says. "While some states do have legislation in place, there is much more to be done regarding tracking of these laws, filling gaps in states that do not yet have laws and education on the importance of restraining pets in moving vehicles, to protect the pet and all family members."
Numerous types of restraints are available at Petland Novi. Options include are dog harnesses, which go around the body of the dog and clip into the regular seat belt buckle, according to the dog safety website canineauto.com. Dog safety seats and travel crates are other choices.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that looking away from the road for only two seconds doubles your risk of being in a crash, Hunter says.
"It's really up to the owner, but people take a gamble when they put their animals in the front seat,"
