Closed petition Make it a legal requirement for drivers to stop& report accidents involving cats

I want the government to amend the law.

The law currently is that you don’t have to stop & report incidents involving cats on the road, yet you have to if it’s a dog.

Both are loved family pets & both have the same effect emotionally if they’re involved in an accident.

It needs to change.

More details

Cats are an extremely common household pet in the UK.

They are loved the same as any other animal in the home & are mourned for the exact same amount as you would a dog.

They do not deserve to be classed as rodents.
If the law was changed, a LOT more people would know what’s happened to their pet rather than wondering forever where their family member has gone.

No driver should be allowed to kill a family member and legally drive off, even if it’s an accident. It needs to be law to stop.
