Do you ride with your dog in the car? Do you use a seat belt to keep your dog safe?
One of the first things I did after I got my two little rescue dogs was to buy them harnesses and seat belts - so that I could drive safely with my dogs.
No climbing into my lap, or jumping around.
And if we should get into an accident, not only would they be secure in the back seat, but if the paramedics need to help me get out, I don't have to worry about my dogs escaping and running away. Or preventing the paramedics from helping me.
My husband wasn't that keen on spending the money, so I reminded him - even if you don't care about your dogs - even little dogs could become deadly projectiles in an accident!
That made sense to him!
According to Jennifer Davidson, the Manager of Traffic Advocacy at AAA, "people don't realize how important it is to buckle up their dog. An unrestrained pet can become a hazardous projectile in the event of an accident or sudden stop, injuring himself, the driver and passengers."
Furthermore, Davidson explains that an unrestrained, 10-lb. dog in a crash at 50 mph will exert approximately 500 lbs. of force, while an unrestrained, 90-lb. dog, traveling in a car at 30 mph in a crash, will exert about 2700 pounds of force.
