Pet Auto Safety Article from AAA

AAA and Kurgo have conducted a survey of people who travel with their pets.  The statistics are staggering.  The two scariest are:

“More than two in five (42 percent) respondents stated they do not use a pet restraint because their dog is calm and they do not think he/she needs a restraint.”
Nearly one in five respondents to AAA/Kurgo survey admit to taking hands off the wheel to keep dogs from climbing in front seat”

It is not clear on how many people were surveyed.  But if these numbers are correct, we have a lot more work to go with pet auto safety awareness.  You can see more pet auto safety statistics from AAA at

Also, you may be wondering who Kurgo is who helped conduct this survey.  Kurgo has created many pet auto safety travel products including the Backseat Pet Barrier and the Tru-Fit Smart Dog Car Harness which are both available at Pet Auto
