Liam has been potty trained since August and had his first accident on Tuesday coming home from preschool. He was so embarrassed and upset he wouldn't get out of his seat. I felt really bad for him but made sure to assure him that it was ok.

yes both my kids have had accidents in the car. My oldest had been potty trained for a few months and we decided to risk it and drove about 45 mins away; he fell asleep and had an accident. My DD had one a few months ago because she is so stubborn and would not use the bathroom before we left the store.

 She did once. But that was during the 1st couple weeks of potty training. Other than that nope.

My daughter did once and it was totally our fault.  It was in the first week that she was not having accidents when we drove about 20-30 minutes, ate lunch and let her drink a lot, and forgot to take her before we left for home. :( We were stuck in traffic on a busy freeway on the way home so she fell asleep and peed herself.  She cried and I felt so bad. :(

She never had an accident in the car and also refused to let me put a "piddle pad" underneath her.

Started potty training in November and he's only had 1 accident. We usually try to potty before we get in the car to help prevent it. He did have an accident in the stroller when shopping with grandparents during Christmas time. That's a totally different topic since they thought they were being cute and let him drink coke.
