Tickets for Dependents Not Buckled Up

The State of New Jersey of recently passed a law requiring that your pets to wear seat belts while driving in the car. Pet owners will have to purchase a seat belt extension harness for their dog. The maximum fine for not having a seat belt on your dog is $1,000.00. Meanwhile, the maximum fine in NJ for not having a seat belt on your child is $46.00

But can New Jersey dogs pump their own gas?

Interesting. We bought a seatbelt harness for our dog (she tends to go flying off the seat if you stop short) but she quite easily ninjas herself out of it. And I’ve heard other dog owners say the same thing. Maybe I just haven’t found the right style yet? I wonder if keeping your dog in a car kennel would be an acceptable alternative.
