Congratulations New Jersey! And thank you, Governor Christie.
New Jersey is now the only state in the country where driving with pets loose in the car is a violation of animal cruelty law. Drivers who do not secure their pet can face a ticket of $250 to $1,000 and up to six months in jail. Additionally, allowing your pets to hang his head out the window, having him riding in the back of a truck or curling up on the driver’s lap are also ticket-able offenses under the law.
Thank God that this jerk-off Governor Christie didn't run for president.

P.S. I heard on the radio that the penalty for not having a child buckled up in New Jersey is $10, so, financially, it's better to buckle up Fido and Rover than Johnny and Sally.
