POLL: Should Dogs be Banned from Riding on Drivers' Laps?
State lawmakers are looking to pass a bill that would put pets on the list of distractions for drivers in Rhode Island.
Dogs and texting could potentially share something in common.
If a proposed bill is passed, both would be considered serious driving distractions to drivers in Rhode Island, according to a Fox News report Tuesday.
The bill, currently making its way through the state legislature, aims to ban drivers from having their pets ride on their laps.
Violators would pay an $85 fine for the first offense, a $100 fine for the second offense and $125 for subsequent offenses.
