HMMM... so how much are those crates for safety, or because they can then be used for containment?
OK. I look at that harness and while I am no crash expert I can't see where that will not injure the dog at 100KPH. It may well _restrain_ the dog and prevent it becoming a missile, but....
Here's my thing. Seat belts work (and they do still cause sever bruising and broken ribs) because they allow negligible movement before they start restraining...you never "hit your straps", so to speak. So you are stopped from moving almost instantly and then released by a few inches to cushion you. Any harness that allows freedom will let the body keep moving and then come up against restraint....the result is usually a more dramatic deceleration....you "hit the straps". Seat belts also have been designed to fit the human body's stiffness and strenghts. I do not feel that dog harnesses have. The whole hindquarters of the dog are free....broken back.
