    Although it is always advisable:- Rule 58 of the Highway Code deals with travelling with pets and states:

    “When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.”

    Although the Highway Code states this, is there actually a law covering this point, I don't think so?

    The police will pull you here for it if spotted.
    Do try reading all of it as regards danger driving,thats how they enforce it.

    All it takes is a simple eye hook bolted through the floor with a spreader plate under it,the type used on t/bars will be the job,cost little.
    We have a harness for the car trev clipped into the seat belt but we only have the two front seats in the van,so we’re going to have to sort something out,we have a cage we can put her in and she’s comfortable inside it but we would like her to be out but at the same time safely restrained in the van,

    Good idea,the bit that i always think about is the dog going out the wind shield or breaking someones neck in a crash,remember any loose items including spare wheels jacks, tools, s/pans, m/wave etc not bolted down is a missile.

    My little dog sits on the front seat attached to the seatbelt. If there is anyone sitting on the seat she sits on their knee attached to the seat belt they are using.

    We only have seat belts in the front but haven't travelled with Sparky in this van yet. As a minimum if we do not have something sorted he would sit on my lap with a harness secured to my seat belt. I wouldn't carry a dog without something to stop them hitting the windscreen/furniture/passengers etc. at 30mph+.

    We haven’t travelled with ours in this van and she’s slightly to big and heavy to sit on my knees and she’s not very comfortable even though she doesn’t look very big or heavy 83D3B6C1-2D0F-4BBA-9CB1-CBD7919022D2.jpg

    I'm with others on this,
    There is no law in the UK stating dogs or pets must be restrained in a vehicle.
    There is however laws in other eu countries stating they must be in cages or belts.

    I'm lucky. As soon as the engine starts mine goes behind the drivers seat and doesn't come out till the engine stops.
