Having your child locks on your car doors ...My kids are now 5 and 8 ( 3 months) and know not to touch the door handles, I had the locks on because my middle daughter use to mess with the handles when she was younger. So I was just thinking the other day I have my child locks on my car doors, is it really safe? Yes it is because they cant accidently open the car door while I'm driving , but then I thought no its not safe what if something happened and they had to get out of the car? they wouldn't be able to because they only open from the outside.. What do you think?Answer Question

Sorry, but I can't think of a scenario where you couldn't get out of the car and then get your kids out. Maybe I am just not paranoid enough.
How about an idiot driver runs you off the road and you lose control of your car, wind up in a ditch, and you are injured and unconscious? I have seen several news stories where something like this has happened. I can see what the OP is talking about. It's not about being paranoid, but rather weighing the risks of what could happen and the fact that older children may not need the safetly locks.

I think when you can trust that they won't open the door when they aren't supposed to its a good idea to disengage the child safety locks.
