Center Console—Not a Pet Booster Seat

September 3, 2013, by Michael A. DeMayo

It can be so challenging to strap little Socks to back seat in a seat belt of all places when you know the best place for the little pup is right next to you.  He’s always been the best at picking a good radio station, sipping coffee, or moving the car from drive to neutral. 

It’s no problem to buck the kids up, but for whatever reason it is much more difficult to subject the little fur pocket to same safety restraints.  If not to protect you and your passengers from an auto accident, then out of respect and concern for the safety of others who travel the roads in North Carolina. 

It can be so easy to slam on brakes and grab the little fella from rolling into the floorboard, but the extra time and attention it requires could be better used to respond to an auto accident in the making.  Nearly every pet store in town has a simple seat belt extension for five bucks that can serve the purpose.  If the dog requires the finer things, for the cost of a tank of gas you can install an entire thermal heating lounge in the back seat or cargo section. 

At the Law Offices of Michael A. DeMayo we are constantly trying to conjure up ways to keep you safe while out on the North Carolina roadways.  If you have ideas about how to stay safe then give us a call or shoot us an e-mail.  Go to our website and click “Contact us.”
