Good to be a grown-up: everything you need to do for their own safety before you travel is to buckle up. Children, we put in a special seat, and are pleased that most parents do it not out of fear of a fine. About animals in the SDA did not say, but logic dictates that to take a certain action is. Pets themselves can not protect, so to do so must master. From a formal point of view, the pet’s normal weight. He shall not interfere in the management of the vehicle and obscure the driver’s view. But it’s a common word, we will make specific recommendations.
First axiom: next to the driver animals have nothing to do! Dangerously close to the controls “unpredictable” objects should not be. A cat or dog may suddenly like the place under the pedals or on the dashboard directly in front of the driver. Where will this lead in an emergency situation, no need to explain.
Right passenger seat is also banned. This person feels a sharp slowdown and is committed to maintain its posture, and the animal can not. As a result, the pet will fly in rigid plastic panel or windshield. The author of these lines, watched the result of such negligence, when moved closer to the driver Labrador smashed inside the triplex. Known cases when after such incidents the owners did not recognize the Pets of traumatic brain injury than amplifying the effects of seemingly banal braking.
The harness mount to the standard strap is the most common security system for dogs and cats. Are there catalogs, accessories major brands. For example, Skoda and BMW.The harness mount to the standard strap is the most common security system for dogs and cats. Are there catalogs, accessories major brands. For example, Skoda and BMW.
The vast majority of motorists carrying animals on the second row of seats. Looks like the best option: far from the controls, easy to control, and the favorites do not survive, constantly seeing the owners. But the ideal solution — the trunk of a station wagon or SUV. The fact is that in the latter case, when an accident on the way animals stand firm back of the sofa, a fixture which is designed for heavy loads. With rear same seat will start flying forward uncontrolled. It is fraught with additional injuries not only for the pet, but also for sitting in front of people. Including fatal.
It is naive to think that you can protect four-legged friend only one correct choice of place in the car. Miracles do not happen, and in the event of emergency braking or accident no additional restraint is not enough. Keep on hand a pet or child — stupidity in equal measure. In an accident the dog or cat is “heavier” at 20-40 times depending on the severity of the impact. Hold? In addition, don’t forget to drop down towards a safety cushion or solid back of the front seat, if you sit in the back. So, death with such disregard is very likely.
The most inexpensive option — the harness attached to the seatbelt, lock the brackets or the Isofix system. It provides the animal a certain degree of freedom, so it is not nervous, but the collision will reduce the risk of injury. Please note: it is the harness that distribute the load on her chest. Regular collar kills pet instantly! However, conducted the German club ADAC, Allianz and Japanese brand Subaru crash tests showed that the quality of the products in this product group almost none. The protection that could be called good, provide one. Basically, even in a relatively civilized European market only offer Chinese products “no name”. What can we say about Russia… But still better than no protection. The most reliable way to buy a quality thing — to consult the catalogues of branded accessories for your brand of car. Most likely, something will be found. Internet sites like Aliexpress similar products overwhelmed but can we trust them?
Someone who relies on a cell, but there are a number of nuances. If it is not secure, then no additional benefit for our little brothers she will bring. “Houses” for dogs and cats with the standard Isofix unknown author probably in the nature such does not exist yet. Fasten their safety belt useless. Pet plastic is not designed for large loads, and the narrow tape is simply push or it will tear. The iron cells are another problem: they are heavy, not everyone can handle them, and the walls are not designed for extreme impact and in accidents, most likely, will separate.
If you still put pet in cage, put it only across the movement. A large area of the lateral side will provide less pressure in an emergency. During a parallel installation, the animal will not be able to turn sideways, and the whole tremendous force of deceleration will have on the spine and neck. Effects — extremely sad. It is desirable to set the carrier on the floor, breaking between the front and rear seats, or along the back of the sofa in the trunk.
May sound cynical, but someone may care only about their safety, ignoring the problems of the Pets. In this case, it is possible to set the lattice-partition. They are the iron or fabric, fastened on the straps, or hard. The most reliable option — steel or aluminum construction between Luggage compartment and rear seat mounted in a regular car seat (they are in any modern station wagon). This will keep even a large dog breed. People in the cabin bulkhead will protect the animal — as lucky. Fabric mesh with flimsy straps better not to watch: it is a purely decorative solution that will not withstand the applied load.
Most motorists, pet owners are limited to the purchase of a hammock in the car. To protect the it can only the purse of the owner from spending on dry-cleaning salon. By the way, use of security harnesses is difficult: the canopy blocking the safety belts and their locks and Isofix brackets.Most motorists, pet owners are limited to the purchase of a hammock in the car.

Do not think that the above tips apply only to those who travel with dogs and cats. Any pet in varying degrees, unpredictable, and it is necessary to exclude its influence on the actions of the driver. Another thing is that branded accessories are designed only for the animals. Therefore, to ensure the safety of his beloved iguanas and monkeys have a certain degree of imagination and ingenuity.

Of course, all these devices cost money, hundreds, and even thousand. Pet they need to first teach, and then not to forget to use even on short trips. It is difficult, expensive and takes much time? Well, in that case, the care of the animal, apparently, you can not afford. After all the extra hassle and requires transportation of a child in a child seat. Or take a look at the motorcyclists, who to protect on the mountain equipment worth tens of thousands of rubles, although the traffic rules allow to do only the helmet.
Remember: we are responsible for those who tamed.
