Well then, remove it.  Fido can bounce around the car to his hearts content.  Nothing quite compares to that broken neck you received because Sparky became a missile.

Better yet, hold your cocker on your lap, they make for excellent airbags.

I don't do it to protect them from an accident, I do it to prevent one in the first place. My dogs walk around constantly in the back seats and often try to make moves into the front. Restraining them comfortably (whether it actually helps further protect them or not) helps ensure I can keep my focus on the road and not them. I think the research fails to recognize this is why the majority of drivers use these things.

I love my dogs, but the primary reason for the restraint isn't their safety.

As much as I'd like to see my dog protected, I'm more worried about him becoming a 100lb missile and killing everyone in the front seats and in the 3 cars ahead.

Restraint was an issue a long time before the above accident happened.

I thought the point was to keep the dogs from distracting the driver.
