Most people who own a pet are partial to taking them out for a drive, but do you know what the rules and regulations are? You could potentially get a hefty fine or run into difficulty if..

  • Your animals aren’t restrained. The Highway Code states that all animals need to be restrained, to prevent them from distracting you or other road users.
  • It’s unlikely that you’ll get stopped for driving with your dog in the front seat, but most insurance policies don’t include an animal as a passenger. If you’re involved in an accident with an animal in the vehicle, you could run into difficulty..
  • Keep all doors locked and windows secured. Figgity pets can lead to problems.

That’s our guide for traveling safely with animals in your vehicle. Keep safe. If your car becomes dirty by having your pet inside, contact the team at Pristine Car Wash for their help.
