According to a statement released by Liuzhou Traffic Police, the driver said that there was no space in her tiny car which is why they decided to ‘walk their dog’ outside of the car on their way home.
The driver surnamed Li told the police that the dog actually belonged to her friend and was given two demerit points as well as a $15 fine.
