Driving With Your Pets

Woodstock Police have received complaints from the public about drivers being distracted while having their dogs on their laps.

Taking your dog for a ride in your car can be dangerous to you, your pet and to others on the road.

Some provinces already have a distracted driving law for pets who are loose in vehicles and are a distraction to drivers.

Presently a driver could be charged with careless driving if they cause a collision and their pets are a distraction.

Dogs can interfere with a driver's ability to steer. Dogs can be a projectile to all occupants in the vehicle and can cause serious injuries if a collision occurs. Pets can interfere with visibility of the driver. Pets can also interfere with foot pedals.

In order to keep everyone safe in a vehicle buckle up your furry pet in the backseat.

The WOODSTOCK POLICE SERVICE would like to encourage anyone having information about distracted drivers to contact WOODSTOCK POLICE SERVICE at 519-537-2323 or Crime Stoppers 421-TIPS (8477) or toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
