If I tell you that dogs in Park City are like sacred cows in India, I'm probably repeating myself.
It's quite common to see drivers (mostly female) motoring along with their pooch on their laps. I think this practice is irresponsible, dangerous and idiotic and it prompted me to check if it was legal in Utah, my home state.
Only one state, Hawaii, makes it illegal to drive while holding an animal in the driver's lap or in the driver’s immediate area.
New Jersey is paying a bit more attention to the problem and can fine drivers up to $1,000 if they hold a pet in ways that can impair their driving.
Connecticut may also charge drivers for having pets in their laps but the rest of the country doesn't seem to care.
I probably missed it, but stupidity must be etched into our constitution.
