    I also suspect that riding bikes in manner that contravenes the law may void your health insurance if you should want to claim on injuries that you got from doing something illegal - but I'm not 100% sure about that one.
    That's ok, I don't have health insurance.

    Just thought I should probably add in here, this thread wasn't meant to wind people up as it clearly has done.

    I do exercise my dogs on bikes, and I understand that is not everyone's cup of tea and that's fine. I don't even mind if people get all pi$$y at me about it.

    But nothing in here was purposeful winding up.

    Hefty fines involved if you are caught and laughing about possible injuries, thumbing your nose at the law which is in place whether you or anyone agrees with it or not.

    Choosing to do anything on one's own property, private land is one thing (underage kids can drive cars on it, you can choose to ride and lead a dog) but flouting this on a dog forum which usually promotes responsibility is another. I thought we were here to promote education and responsible dog practices.

    What does this kind of thing say to newbies?

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I can see your point about setting a good example for newbies but really many of us are only now learning there is a law against riding with dogs.
    I think Lala may have said some of what she has as she felt attacked & in other circumstances would not have said what she has.
    You know we are all entitled to our own veiws & opinions but I do feel that myself included sometimes forum members can come across very judgemental & that just gets peoples backs up. I myself am trying to come across a little softer & less judgmental.
    I say things daily poeple don't like but not to aggravate & hope all know this. I truely like hearing others opinions & think debate is good for the soul.
    I hope this thread dose not cause anyone to leave the forum or that anyone would leave because of something I say.
    At the end of the day everyone has their own individual needs as do their pets & really we are all on the same page as far as wanting to do the best for our dogs so maybe we can look past the other differnces in opinion on dog breedeing, training & feeding.
    Peace all..................

    I also did not know that those law were in place.
    Now I do though and so I have learned something new.

    Harnessing dogs in cars is new as well but should that give the right to people to decide if they wish to do so or not?

    My point is that now this thread has brought the laws to light that we all learn from this.

    Yep exsactly what I think is so great about some of these forum as you learn something new everday.
    I was not pointing the finger at anyone in particular either in my last post, just speaking in general.
    I have been fined for having a dog on my lap whilst driving even though the dog was actully on the console & jumped onto my lap when we pulled over & stopped for a breathtest. I lost points & got 2 fines, 1 for having an unrestrained dog(was a 7wk mini foxie, tiny pup) in the car & another for not being in proper control of a moter car(which was bull). So they can & do hand them out. Cost me nearly $1000 to pay 1st fine & appeal the 2nd, I did win that 1.

    I have never had dogs harnessed in cars as they do not go in them much away from the farm and then usually only to the vets. They traveled well, just lying on the back seat.
    I went and bought harnesses when I became aware as my license is too precious to me to lose.

    The harness law was only recently brought in and was made much of across the media.

    I was absolutely not aware that riding my bike and leading my dog was illegal. As said before hand,there are hundreds that do it everyday ,responsibly.
    I dont and wont see the problem with it , law or not.

    So long as you are aware and take caution of course ( oh and where a helmet )

    Just as I don't see the point of having my dogs in a harness. But it is the law now.

    I agree, I wouldn't travel with a dog unrestrained if it was a nut & ran around the car barking but I have seen many others do it, lol.
    There is an older lady here & she drives around with 4 or 5 toy type dogs bouncing from front to back & hanging out the windows barking if they see a dog or anything that excites them. My partner & I where behind her yesterday & he was saying how on earth did you cop what you did & yet she dose this circus drive daily at the same time everyday bar Sunday, lol..........
    I now follow this law & was actully thankful for it when I recently had a high speed head on with Bubba in the car.
