Honolulu Police Department Capt. Andrew Lum answers this week’s question.
Question: Do dogs have to be buckled up in a car that’s moving?
Dogs need to be properly restrained while in a moving vehicle.
An animal not restrained can get hurt, killed, or cause an accident when it’s loose in a moving vehicle.
A driver can be fined $97 for driving with a dog on their lap or $57 if the animal is loose in a moving vehicle.
Remember to always keep your animal secure, put them in a cage, or tethered while the vehicle is in motion.
