Nearly 60% of dog owners have driven whilarapahoe-in-care distracted by their pets as passengers, according to a new survey by auto club AAA. Only 17% - about one in six - ever use animal restraints, which can prevent pets from being a distraction and protect them and other occupants in a crash, the survey finds.
In crashes, unrestrained dogs pose an unintended threat to the driver and other passengers, says Jennifer Huebner-Davidson, manager of traffic safety programmes at AAA (US equivalent of the AA).
She says an unrestrained 10lb (4.5kg) dog in a crash at 50mph will exert 500lb (227kg) of force on whatever it strikes; an 80lb (36.3kg) dog in a crash at just 30 mph will exert about 2,400lb (1088kg), she says. Unrestrained dogs also can prove distracting by climbing onto the driver's lap, interfering with the ability to steer or crawling onto the foot pedals.
