Proposed NC bill would make it illegal to drive with pet in lap

- If you have small dogs, sometimes your pet wants to hop in your lap on a drive.

A new bill filed in the General Assembly would make it illegal to drive a vehicle with an animal in your lap.

The bill cites safety reasons, saying it’s a form of distracted driving.

If passed, the penalty could cost you $100 but it wouldn’t cost you points on your license.
