Letter: Ban little dogs behind wheel too

The idea behind banning cellphone usage while driving is a good one. I am a firm believer in not texting while driving as well, but does anyone else not see the absurdity of having a live animal such as a cute little Chihuahua on their laps while driving as dangerous if not more so than texting/using a cellphone?

Might as well drop a lit cigarette in your lap. Please, if you’re going to ban cellphones, ban the dogs too.
