Herb white tree, NBC News post - 3 pm.

You would not believe to to drive your kids in the car without wearing their safety belts. So why the family pet can be an unsecured passenger?

"It is to distract the driver and dangerous for the animal, which is a flying object or can be ejected from the vehicle in an accident", Dr. Marty Becker said the site, writes "they must either in a carrier that is backed up or a kind of dishes, which is secured. This is to protect them and you."

Your dog or your cat is in the back seat. It is the same reason, the young children in safety sit there you want to go. It keeps them away from the front airbags, which seriously injure or kill you if she could go off.

Edmunds has its top 10 pet safe vehicles recently. These new SUVs, vans, hatchbacks and wagons are designed, which makes it easier for you to transport your pet safely. Have also enhanced, the Fido driving more fun make. And they all start at under $35,000.

"The majority of these vehicles have a pet, a fairly large, in a box, also have you," said Edmunds property editor Carroll Lachnit. "This is, why there is a much larger vehicles on the list. "Fold flat areas can install and secure can have a box."

Other cars on the list have the option, the dog in a harness for the same latch and bottom anchor, you would use a car seat to ensure secure.

Some of the winners have climates with which you keep comfortable your pet, even though they are riding in a crate in the back. (Of course an animal should be never left in a parked car when it's hot outside.)

Here is a selection of the top 10:

Barrier gets high marks for the customized pet the Volvo XC70 .

"Most pets barriers are not preserved in place in a crash," Lachnit said. "This is the real deal crash tested by Volvo. It is bolted liberal in the vehicle in a collision." The XC70 has a dead angle warning system that can help the driver if there is a pet in the back, which reduces visibility.

The Jeep Liberty makes the list because it specialized pet travel gear, such as boxes and carrier offers. There is even a ramp for dogs that get a harder into the vehicle time because large, old, or arthritis.

On the sporting KIA soulside airbags are fitted as standard. This important safety feature protects man and the four-legged passengers in a collision. You can get rear privacy glass, which keeps the back of the car cooler.

The Mazda 5 minivan gets points for its dual rear sliding doors make access to the rear a breeze. The low cargo floor helps to get also a pet on board.

"Tethers and anchors in the second and third lines are useful if you are backing up pets with a strap are." Click the same way that a seat would be safety, "remarked Lachnit.

The Mazda 5 has also page curtain in all three rows.

Of course, you can make each car a pet-safe vehicle. Simply you can not by your pet to roam freely in the car, and let not your pooch to hang his head out the window. Dogs love it, but it is not certain.

"Everything is in the air - it no stone caused, there can be an error - when it hits their eyes at 60 miles per hour - it serious eye damage" explained Dr. Becker. "So they have to stick their heads out the window not."
