Police continued to explain, “The dog is not a passenger so [it] would not require seatbelt but [it] would be considered cargo when transported on highway and must be prevented from dislodging onto roadway and causing dangerous condition.”
The dog, noted police, could have also been injured if the truck was rear ended.
The driver agreed with police.
