Woman gets $130 ticket for driving with dog on lap

UPI News Service, 06/03/2013 

An Oregon woman said she plans to contest a $160 ticket she was issued for driving with her 9-pound dog on her lap.

Diane Martin said she was driving with her husband and had the silky terrier, Barney, on her lap Thursday when she was pulled over in Beaverton by an officer who told her it was unsafe to have the dog on her lap while behind the wheel, KGW-TV, Portland, Ore., reported Monday.

Martin was issued a $160 ticket.

"I think it's ridiculous. I think it's ridiculous and 'Barney' does too. He likes to have fresh air once in awhile and he likes to look out the window, and by golly, if he needs to get on somebody's lap to do it, but it's not always my lap. I'm a safe driver. I abide by the rules," Martin said.

Martin said she plans to contest the fine in court later this month.
