Craig Indianapolis, IN 9/1/2010 9:51:53 AM I support any law that takes into consideration the safety of the pet--in this case, dogs. However, I feel the State of CT (and all other states) should institute a pet restraint law for vehicles that would mandate the use of pet car seats / booster seats and/or restraint harnesses that utilize existing rear seat-belts to keep pets from "free-ranging" in the car while it is in motion. We buckle up ourselves, our children and other passengers. Why do we assume it's safe to leave a pet to roam and distract a drivers attention? Driver distraction, by pets, is one of the leading causes of accidents, injuries and death on the road. Even during a quick emergency stop a loose pet can be thrown through the windshield, into a child or passenger, or even beneath the brake pedal. Loose pets are dangerous to themselves, to passengers and to innocent others, on the road, who might become directly involved in an accident when a loose pet is thrown from the vehicle. Please encourage your state legislators to pass pet restraint laws, to help keep everyone safe on the road, and save lives.
