The police remind you how to travel safely with pets
On the occasion of this event, policemen remind you of how to properly transport our pets. Several important factors must be taken into account to ensure safety.
1. Avoid free movement of your pet: Pets should always be secured when traveling to avoid accidentally falling off or interfering with driving by trying to get to the front of the car. Remember that unexpected movements of the animal can lead to dangerous situations on the road. 2. Make sure your pet is securely secured in the vehicle: there are many special harnesses, cages and carriers available on the market that allow you to safely and comfortably transport your pet in the vehicle. Choose the appropriate protection according to the size, species and temperament of the animal. 3. Pay attention to the safety of the driver: animals in the vehicle should always be secured in such a way that they do not disturb the driver and do not affect his ability to concentrate on driving. Being distracted can lead to dangerous situations on the road. Make sure your pet is securely placed in the car for a smooth ride.
