    This may be extreme, but research by the RAC Foundation showed nearly 90% of all pet-owning motorists had been distracted by their animal when driving, and a further 11% had almost crashed into the car in front because they were too busy attending to their furry friends to look at the road.

    And since the advent of the pet passport scheme it's a growing problem, as more people take their family pets with them on longer and longer drives.

    "In a 30mph collision, an unrestrained dog can be thrown forward with the force equivalent to a small elephant.

    "The driver and the dog could be killed in such a collision. Most motorists now understand the importance of belting up their children in the back, but many forget about their four-legged friends."

    Can't mean you, John - the article said "the size of a small elephant" - think your dogs are a bit bigger than that! :Rofl1:
