I have said how I would love to run for President in 2016 and this would be my platform.

Abolish 75% of the Red Lights in the country.
Make Self-Awareness taught in every single grade.
(Like when your pants don’t fit and you still wear them, or driving 55 in the fast lane when the minimum is 70 and having bad breath.)

I am adding a new item to my platform.

Driving with your dog in your lap!
Stop it right now!
A lady was swerving on the road today,
You know what she was doing?
Petting her dog!
She narrowly missed several cars going the other way and then, almost ran me off the road.
This has to stop.
Look, I love my dog. Let me re-phrase that.
I LOVE my dog.
But she rides in the passenger seat and stays there.
Like this.

I get our love for our pets but at what cost?
Here is a report from 2009:
{Although NHTSA does not track the number of pet-related car accidents, 16% of fatal crashes in 2009 involved distracted driving, and about 448,000 passengers were injured. Even if you have the most mild-mannered pooch, it pays to restrain pets during car rides}.
Well that didn’t help my cause any, but you can surmise that Mr. Freckles had something to do with some of those crashes.
So why not this?

Even Chewbacca knows what to do so he buckles up little Chewy for the ride.

We can do this.
