Here is Why We Do Not Need a Doggie Seat Belt Law in NJ

If you needed more proof that adopting a new law to make sure that you loveable pal Fido is properly restrained in your vehicle, look no further.

All this work to put a new law on the books is all for naught as we already have a law that covers protecting your pet in the car. One more duplicate law that wasn’t necessary.

Here is the current NJ law :

4:22-18. Carrying animal in cruel, inhumane manner; disorderly persons offense

A person who shall carry, or cause to be carried, a living animal or creature in or upon a vehicle or otherwise, in a cruel or inhumane manner, shall be guilty of a disorderly persons offense and punished as provided in subsection a. of R.S.4:22-17.

Amended by L.1995, c. 355, § 3, eff. Jan. 5, 1996; L.1996, c. 64, § 2, eff. July 12, 1996; L.2001, c. 229, § 2, eff. Aug. 27, 2001.


If the current law, covers carrying or transporting a pet in a cruel or inhumane manner, then why do we need another law to cover it?

Here is the proposed bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer. Click on the link below to read the proposed law:
