Keep the dogs at home

To the people who drive with their small dogs on their laps:

The speed of an air bag on the steering wheel (in case of an accident) is about 150 miles per hour. The steering wheel is at most 10-12 inches from your body.

You guess what’s going to happen to your dog. Your body, dog, airbag … you will never, never get over it.
