SACRAMENTO (AP) - A state lawmaker wants motorists to stop
driving with a pet on their lap.
Republican Assemblyman Bill Maze says he doesn't have anything
against pets. He just doesn't think they belong in the driver's seat.
Maze has a bill to be considered his week that would make it an
infraction for someone to drive with an animal in their arms or lap.
A recent triple-A study ranked pets and loose objects as a bigger distraction for drivers than cell phone use, eating and drinking.
