Do you drive with your dog on your lap? Under the proposed law, you could be fined up to $200.

The bill was introduced on Tuesday in Lansing by Detroit Democratic Rep. LaTanya Garrett. It says that nobody in the state would be allowed to drive with a dog on their lap unless it's for medical purposes. 

If you violate the proposed law, you would be fined $100 the first time and $200 each time after that.

Other states have already passed the law, and the bill will now to go to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for review.

Do you think this is a good idea? Or is Lansing wasting their time?
