Of course when you are on a long distance route with no rest stops in the middle of nowhere.
My boy cousin who is 12 seems needing a pee all the time and is allowed to go behind a tree!
His sister who is a year smaller once whispered to me that she has to go but she had to wait 2 hours because of her mom's rule.
I try to teach my kids to obey common courtesy and local laws. Most areas have laws against public urination. I understand a true emergency, but by the time a kid is 12, they should be able to plan their beverage consumption to account for rest stops.

I guess my parents were true hillbillies, because, being from small town Nebraska, whenever we traveled my sister and I would always have to pee and my parents had a roll of biodegradable toilet paper in the car glove box and we would just pull of the side of the road. My sister and I wouldn't pee outside at home or anywhere else, it was only done on roadtrips.
