I'm lucky. As soon as the engine starts mine goes behind the drivers seat and doesn't come out till the engine stops.
My dog liked to travel standing up between the front seats, sniffing the air out of the dashboard vent and looking out through the windscreen. If he got bored of that, there was a padded rug between the seats that he could lie down on, and a cot mattress under the table he could go to bed on.
He never travelled sitting: only standing up or lying down. He never explained why.
He was "suitably restrained": he would not go anywhere in the way of the driver because he knew he wasn't allowed to.
I have been driving for half a century, driving over 40,000 miles per year for well over a decade. I have not yet had an accident sufficient to even bruise a hamster. Not saying it can't happen, but I am saying it is not a major concern.
Anyone concerned about a pet being injured in an accident will NOT restrain a dog by its collar: in a crash they'll be strangled or have their neck broken.
