What is happening in NJ?  Apparently the recently enacted law which requires pets to be fastened has created quite an uproar.   Ray Martinez, head of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission sites several reasons for the new legislation, which include both driver safety, and animal cruelty.   This is part of a two prong approach to both reducing distrated driving and eliminating animal cruelty.   Martinez states that not bucking up animals is cruel because in an accident pets become projectiles.   

   According to a recent report released, in Bergen and Passaic Counties, police officers issues 359 tickets for failure to wear a seatbelt, and no tickets for unrestrained pets.   Perhaps, law enforcement is warning violators for now.   I would urge you to buckle up your pets if you plan on driving in NJ or risk a fine of between $250 and $1,000 per offense, plus up to 6 months jail time.
