GRRRRR Driving with pets on your lap GRRRRRR

Fed up with seeing PPL driving with bloody pets on their laps, so sent of an email to the TAC
"I agree with the campaign about the use of mobile phones whilst driving, but when are you going to crack down on people, of all ages and genders, driving with small pets on their laps.
This practice is in my opinion is far more dangerous than answering a phone whilst driving.
If the fine for mobiles is $135.00, the fine for driving with a pet on your lap should be$1,350, and loss of licence for 12 months.
It would be easy to find the culprits, you only have to look."

Bet the pricks won't even answer, 'cuase most of the offenders are old pricks, just like me.

What about impounding the pet at the owner's expense!

Re: GRRRRR Driving with pets on your lap GRRRRRR

I was in a 60 zone this old lady infront of me in an old magna doing 40. Anway she had about 4 dogs in the car running all over her and her daughter. Anway the next thing we go to the round about she slams on the breakes and there are birds flying around her car as well.

I was thinking wouldnt this already be illegal.

Maybe the birds were getting away from the snakes on the seat.

I thought all dogs had to be restrained or you can cop a fine.

I have a harness for my staffy that plugs into the seat belt plug. Bloody top idea he gets to sit uo and look around but doesnt even feel the need to move after he first tested it out.

One of the smartest things I have seen in ages for taking your pet for a drive.
