The comments that have been floated around regarding NJ drivers being ticketed for not putting a seat belt on Fido are not true. Nor are the rumors about owners receiving tickets for their dogs hanging their heads out the car window.

Yocum commended Jim on being the ONLY person in NJ that was reporting the facts correctly regarding what this law, statute NJ4:22-18 was intended for and that is to prevent the cruel and inhumane transportation of animals
