New law to keep dogs out of the driver’s seat

Legislation is pending in Springfield that would keep dogs out of the driver’s seat.

State Representative Dan Burke of Chicago says he has seen a number of people driving with dogs on their laps and calls it a public safety concern.

Under Burke’s proposed law– getting caught with a pet in the driver’s seat would carry a $25 fine.

However the state rep does acknowledge that there are more serious issues on people’s minds, like the state’s financial crisis.
