(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon lawmakers are considering a measure that would make it a crime for someone to drive with a dog sitting in his or her lap.  Under the bill, anyone caught doing so faces a Class-D traffic violation and up to a 250-dollar fine.  State Senator Bill Hansell, who's sponsoring the bill, says driving with any live animal on your lap presents a distraction and puts the pet, the driver, other passengers and other drivers at risk for an accident.  The bill is now before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
