Almost a Newbie but not quite now.
I noticed this on a thread on facebook the other day and was very surprised by it. I am not a dog owner but wonder how many people know of the penalties that can be imposed. I have often seen dogs unrestrained.

The penalties that can be imposed are those for 'driving without due care and attention.' Not for just having an unrestrained pet.

Being prosecuted for having an unrestrained pet would be the result of an accident directly attributable to your pet interfering with your driving or distracting you in some way.

16 years since restarting
is No;2 illegal then if the pet is restrained?
third party cover is mandatory for companies so no6 isn't true.
You may not get your own costs covered but you aren't insuring for that .

We keep our Border Collie restrained when driving with a similar item as in the link below fitted to the rear seat belts. The lead fitted to our dogs harness received the thumbs up during a police safety advisory check carried out on our van when parked up in the motorway services about 18 months ago.
