How to take your pet in the car this vacation without risk of being fined

Have you ever taken your pet in a car ? And on a motorcycle ? Most likely yes, especially now that the summer holidays are beginning . And nothing happens if you do it correctly. Otherwise, they can fine you and in the event of an accident it can put your life and the lives of other users in danger. So if your faithful companion is going to accompany you on a trip this summer, it is important that you know how to do it in the safest way for everyone. 
The first thing you should be clear about is that the worst option is to wear it loose . A free animal in the cabin is synonymous with constant attention, something that you cannot afford when you are behind the wheel. Likewise, it is likely that if your pet is not properly restrained it will jump on you or, what would be worse, on mechanical systems such as pedals, gear changes, etc.
The fact that your pet pokes his head out of the window or ends up jumping can also pose a risk to other road users. Not counting, the damages that you and the rest of the passengers could suffer in the event of a collision or braking : according to the RACE, in an accident at 50 km / h a dog weighing 20 kilos would multiply its weight by 35 and weigh 700 kilos.
As we said, if a police officer considers that you are carrying the animal improperly, you may receive a minor infraction with the value of 80 euros , without withdrawal of points. This fine is upheld in article 18 of the General Traffic Regulations, which establishes: “the driver of a vehicle is obliged to maintain his own freedom of movement, the necessary field of vision and permanent attention to driving, which guarantee their own safety, that of the rest of the occupants of the vehicle and that of other road users. For these purposes, he must take special care to maintain the proper position and that the rest of the passengers maintain it, and the proper placement of the objects or animals transported so that there is no interference between the driver and any of them ”.
