|Weird. Last I knew RI had a law that dogs had to be barred from the driver by some means. Harness, crate, barrier, whatever. Nothing specific, but it gave the police rights to pull over anyone with a dog visibly interfering with their driving. That would make a law on no dogs in laps pointlessly redundant.
Although, if the police see or you want to complain about someone driving with a dog jumping on them it would generally fall under a distracted driving, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, or whatever else depending on your area. So technically all the cell phone-specific and dog-specific laws are kind of redundant. I know people in CT who have been pulled over on these grounds simply for having multiple dogs in a vehicle.
