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

    Weíre hoping ours is similar Sue because thatís what she does in the car she just lies down and sleeps until we stop! But for the van if we canít find anything suitable she will have to lie in between the seats I think,because there is nowhere else for her to sit/sleep

    He hits the dash I expect Trev, same with my dog Eric and the same with me since I rarely wear a seatbelt unless I see plod around. He's been to 33 countries and has always travelled untethered, either on the missus' lap or more recently on our lad's adventure, on his cushion on the passenger seat. I drive the MH like an old woman and if we end up in a crash it will with any luck be a low velocity one!

    It amazes me that you dare to admit this on line it is so obvious you have no respect for other road uses, worse still any passengers or family that may travel with you.

    Be amazed Alf. Life is full of risks. I'm far more concerned about the risk of him being attacked by another dog while out walking than I am about him being hurt in an accident. What exactly is the risk to passengers and family?

    He died of cancer aged almost eleven.
    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.

    Nothing to do with your dog the fact you say you don't wear a seat belt gives to me away your attitude to your driving
