My daughter did once or twice, she was a little escape artist.

not themselves but when my son was a baby (about 2 mths) and my daughter (4 at the time) was riding in her seat next to him.  She unlatched his seat while I was driving and we went around a corner and he flipped.  I was more scared than anything

Our kids have never tried that.  I'm honestly surprised, hearing how many kids actually do this.

My cousin's SS did once when his grandma was driving... He unbuckled himself, lunged in between the front seats, grabbed the steering wheel and yanked with all his strength, all while they were on the HIGHWAY. His grandma was barely able to pull over. She was crying and sobbing and called my cousin to come pick him up. All because he "just felt like seeing what would happen." He's 8.

Yep. My oldest did....scared me to death. This was a couple years ago, so he as around 4. He also unbuckled DS2's carseat a couple months ago,so that DS2 tipped forward while we were driving. He got a spanking both times.

My son who is 16 now, did it alot when he was about 2-3 years old. One time I looked in my rear view mirror and this lady was smiling and waving at me. I turned around to see him standing up in his car seat waving at her. I had to pull over and buckle him back in. He had managed to get out without unbuckling the car seat. He was like a houdini. He could also get to locks at the top of the doors we had to keep him from getting outside. He has adhd and was very active when he was little. He is an easy teenager now :)
