Did you know that 3% of accidents are caused by pets traveling in cars?
This data is given by the DGT, always concerned about safety and pets, we give you a series of tips to protect your pet.
- You never let go: To begin, we remind you that the fine for having pets loose in the back seat can be around € 90. Not only that, but also, an animal loose inside a vehicle can distract behind the wheel and cause a serious accident. It may seem fun to see a dog with its head out of the window but it is extremely dangerous: for you, for him and for other drivers.
- In the trunk: If possible, your pet should go in the trunk, unless it is a cat, in which case it can go in a carrier, and always on the floor of the vehicle, better than in the seats.
- Before travelling: And do not forget the care before traveling: take him out to relieve himself before entering the car, and if he is nervous, consult your vet. He can give you medication so that the animal travels in peace.
All the precautions are few behind the wheel, but we want your dog or cat to be completely safe.
