According to a recent AAA study, if your pet is riding in the car while you're behind the wheel then you are just as distracted as if you were texting. In fact, driving with an unrestrained pet in the car is the third worst driving distraction behind talking on the phone and texting.
Note: Kirby's car seat is manufactured by Solvit. He also has stairs by Solvit which he uses to get on and off my bed. We have been using these products for more than a year and highly recommend them. I don't know the maker of the vest harness which we purchased at Wal-Mart. We personally purchased these products for Kirby and are simply sharing our experience and opinion.
