In 2013, Center for Pet Safety performed independent crash testing of safety harnesses to determine crashworthiness. 75# Crash Test Dog (No real dogs were used for testing.)
This test was conducted to illustrate the crash protection offered by a product that would be considered a Distracted Driving Tether. The manufacturer did not claim testing. The manufacturer did not claim crash protection. The data returned from this test was not used - it is simply an illustrative test of crash protection that would be offered by most of the safety harnesses where the manufacturer makes no claims of testing.
