If you drive your car or truck with your dog on your lap, enjoy it now, because in the future, it might mean a $100 fine.

A bill, now making it's way through the Michigan house, would make driving with your dog on your lap illegal.

Does this mean driving with your cat on your lap will be legal? What about snakes?

Here's the story.
