This story is a bit hard to believe–well, more than a bit–but it seems to be true.
After a high-speed chase, sometimes at 100 mph, Washington State police had to use spike strips to stop a car that had already smacked into two other cars without stopping. Only then did they find… a dog in the driver’s seat (https://news.yahoo.com/us-man-teaching-dog-drive-arrested-high-speed-001940478.html).
The pit bull’s owner was in the passenger seat so he could reach over and steer, sort of, and work the gas pedal. He admitted he was trying to teach the dog to drive. Police charged him with several offenses, including driving while under the influence of drugs. The dog has been placed in an animal shelter.
Are we to feel encouraged because there are still daft people doing daft things, never mind the stupid pandemic?
I don’t know how to answer that.
