Dogs In Car: Another Dangerous Driving Distraction

An American Automobile Association sponsored study found that 84 percent of dog owners take pets in their cars and 98 percent don’t use restraints. The study found that 52 percent of drivers said they petted their dogs while driving. The study found that pet interaction while driving resulted in 30,000 accidents a year.  So, it’s a good idea that each and every time you travel with your dog, before you you put on your seatbelt, be sure you do the same for your dog.
