Today we have an RCMP member visit to ask us to help remind pet owner to buckle up their pets.
"For safety reasons a pet should never be in the front seat of a vehicle. Should an airbag be activated, the force could seriously injure or kill your pet.
Just like people, animals need to be buckled up for safety. having your pet properly restrained in the back seat can prevent them from escaping, flying forward in your vehicle, or being hurt in a crash.
Keeping your pet secured in your vehicle also prevents your from driving while distracted. Driving distraction is a leading cause of car crashes in B.c."
