More From the California Legislature

Introduced in the Assembly, AB 2233 adds a section to the State Vehicle Code that states:

A person shall not drive a motor vehicle while holding a live animal in his or her arm or arms, or upon his or her lap.

You know, you can't legislate common sense.

But I guess sometimes you gotta punish the lack of it.

This doesn't cover a parrot, cat, or yapping purse dog perched on the driver's shoulder -- which, yes, I have *seen* all of the above, and been a mortified passenger in the last case.

This will pretty much outlaw car hawking, if it's not specifically verbotten already in CA.

Cat said...

Fine. I guess me and my sheep will just stay in Wyoming.

Throughout the months of May and June, I often have a bum lamb in my lap as I drive from the lambing ground to the house, which includes about a mile of highway travel. Most of the time no problem, but one morning I got stuck waiting for a wreck to get cleaned up, and I had three lambs and one large guard dog in the cab with me. It had been snowing, so we were all wet and we stank.

No wonder people want to outlaw our behavior!
