Oregon woman nailed for $160 ticket while driving with dog on her lap

Most of us have seen it behind the wheel: the driver cruising along with their petite (and sometimes not-so-petite) dog standing in their lap with a nose out the window. A Beaverton, OR woman was cited by police for distracted driving while her dog was perched in her lap—a $160 ticket! The woman vows to fight the ticket and says she wasn’t distracted while the dog was getting some ‘fresh air’ during the commute.
