Dogs in cars
OK. I can see why I should restrain a dog in a car. If I have to brake fast, or I hit something, it MAY help the dog and it MAY stop 25 Kg hitting me in the head and breaking my neck.
HOWEVER.....I look at most of the harnesses for dog restraint and I reckon they will not save the dog much, without breaking its back. So we come to actually controlling the dog from getting in the way or snapping my neck.
So far I have the impression that NSW law is the toughest...but it has nothing to do with the dog as a missile. but more about the dog causing an accident. Yet there is this feeling that you MUST have your dog restrained or else.
Anyway....there must be actual laws about this. But all I can find is anecdotal evidence and unlinked statements, They make broad sweeping statements that are then apparently dissed by the the next unsourced claim.
Has anyone a link to actual info, with real info to back it up? State by state?
