is this not a ticketable offense??? certainly should be -

I was sure it was against the law, and even found some sites saying Virginia is one of a few states requiring that dogs be restrained in the back of pickups. But, I can't find the appropriate code section, or references to the appropriate code section.

In Virginia its against the law for your dog to ride in the back of a truck unrestrained, but it is legal for you wife to do so.

i'm ok with that - my wife can make her own decision to risk her life, my dog cannot.
