Motorists in New Jersey now have to make sure their pets are buckled up as well as their human passengers or they could face fines ranging from 250 up to a thousand dollars.

 

Yep, you read that correctly. Either buckle up fluffy in the Garden State or you could be paying a very hefty fine (for each unbuckled animal in the vehicle) thanks to statute 4:22-10 - 60.

What about birds in cages? Someone needs to invent a tiny seat belt for them. How about that pet guinea pig that you may be either bringing home from the store or taking to the vet, do we need seat belts for them too?

What do you think? You know if it's happening in New Jersey, sooner or later someone will push for this in Arkansas and/or Texas. Would you support such a law? Post your comments below!
