New Jersey is beginning to heavily enforce a law on the books which makes it illegal for you to fail to control/ restrain your family pet or other animal while driving. Once you enter the state, any Law Enforcement Official has the right away to stop you and issue a citation. This can range from $250 – 1,000 in fines.

This law is not intended to force people to harness or crate their pets, rather  it is to ensure that they are kept under control and safe while riding in the vehicle.
