finally a law that makes sense
If you’ve spent more than a few minutes with me, then you know that I’m no animal lover. I’ll never understand why people would want a nasty, smelly, hair-shedding animal living in their house and sleeping on their couch.
Anyway, you’ve heard about DUI’s, but a new law that is being proposed in California (it passed the California Assembly and is waiting for a vote in the Senate) would create a new criminal activity: DWD, or Driving with Dog. If passed, it would be illegal to ride in a motor vehicle with a dog on your lap.
My question is, “Why isn’t this already a law?”
I’ll be the first to admit that I talk on my cell phone in the car…without a headset (gasp!). People get all worked up about the dangers of cell phones, but what about all the people with mangy muts running all over their car while driving? I don’t see how this is a good idea or why this new law hasn’t already been passed.
Then again, I’ll never understand why anyone would consider having a pet, so maybe I’m just missing something. Either way, good for you, California.
