    The proposal has received some ridicule, but a new poll shows a majority of New Jersey voters support the idea of requiring pets to be in crates or safety restraints when they ride in cars.

    A Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind Poll released Tuesday found 45 percent of registered voters in favor of the law and 40 percent opposed.
    Assemblywoman Grace Spencer, a Democrat from Newark, introduced the bill in July.
    People letting their dogs or cats run free in their vehicles could be fined $20.
    The poll found just over half of Democrats support it, while just over one-third of Republicans back the idea.
    The telephone poll of 901 voters was conducted from Sept. 6-12 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
