Of course it should. You might be able to count on your reaction to things while driving, and you may reasonably know your pet. But you can never know exactly what they will do in a situation, especially if fear and/or panic enter the picture.

Anyone who would drive with their pet in their lap (or otherwise unsecured in the car, riding loose in the back of a pickup, etc.) cannot say they have the welfare of their animal at heart. There is great potential for injury or worse, not just for the animal, but for any humans involved as well.

Well that's a no brainer if ever I heard one - of course it should be illegal. Duh.
