Chattanooga, TN – Per reports, the Chattanooga Police Department officials are emphasizing that such behavior can be distracting and pose dangers not only to the pets themselves but also to the passengers and drivers.

To ensure safe travels during the summer with pets, authorities advised placing them in the backseat or cargo area, secured with a crash-tested harness or in a sturdy, well-ventilated crate.

This precautionary measure mirrors the importance of buckling up for human safety, extending the same level of protection to pets for a secure journey.
