I think, in the majority of cases, these bull/bully bars are added to cars & trucks only to "enhance" their owners' small manhoods, or to add ruggedness to an otherwise insecure and wimpy man.
Real men are confident and happy to drive small cars.

A safe dog is a happy dog.

Whoa, until I saw it full-sized I didn't notice the C-clamps and the hook under the door handle.

On a suicide style door! Now why would that be called like that?

Last year I hung two sacks with earth and plant seeds on a fence.
The sacks had grommets which hung on hooks. After half a year the grommet broke free from one of the sacks which dropped.

If the hooks or grommets fail on this one... Ugh.
This is wrong in so many ways.

At least it would prevent the dog from accelerating in case of an accident--unless something broke.

A grown woman told me that would happen when I asked why some people transported their pets in cages.

My sister has seatbelt buckles that attach to the collars.

That seems much worse to me.

I usually carry Vanessa (my mixed-breed dog, presumably half Fox Terrier and half Miniature Pinscher) in a cage to avoid her vomiting on the seats, carpet and door trims.

A body harness would make more sense. At least would reduce the likelyhood of neck injuries.
