New Jersey reminds drivers to restrain pets in vehicles
TRENTON (WABC) -- New Jersey drivers are being reminded that the phrase "Click It or Ticket" also applies to four-legged passengers.
The state has noticed a growing problem with drivers being distracted as a result of pets not being properly restrained.
Officials say the pets are not only in danger of hurting themselves and their human family members, but can be the cause of big fines and penalties. They add that unrestrained animals have little chance of surviving even a minor accident.
Police will be on the lookout for pets hanging out of windows, sitting on the laps of drivers or travelling in the open back of pick-up trucks.
