    It doesn't really make much difference where the pet is, in the event of a high speed collision, it's going to ping pong all over the cab, or sleeper. People aren't in the habit of buckling their pets in, so it's just a risk most pet owners are willing to take.

    Some can drive and pet a cat at the same time. It’s called multitasking. Just like walking and chewing gum.
    I know my head is spinning. How is this possible?

    When I see a fool (usually an old female fool) driving with a dog in her lap I usually just try to avoid the urge to push her in to a ditch. People have this delusion that their pets don't act like other pets. Pets are wild animals. They don't speak English, or even human. They're unpredictable. Dog sees a squirrel out the window and puts his claws in to your crotch and starts barking and you run over a kid on a bike, what then?

    ...Idiots.

    I love my dog and cat but not on my lap while I'm driving.

    Didn’t a dude crash out because he spilled coffee on his balls? Same concept.

    So going through the coup with Kitty on the dash is probably bad then?
