If there was an accident & the door was mangled they may have difficulty in getting it open anyway. Surely the main thing is that your son can no longer get out of a moving car?

Have you checked how the child locks work in your friends car? Cos if I were you, I would go with ds to the taxi & do it yourself!!

Why don't you just strap your son in to the middle of the back seat? That way he can't reach either of the doors.

Sensible idea there from Collaborate.

I was going to suggest a crelling harness. That way everyone it's safe and you are reassured.

I’d have said the priority is ensuring he can’t get out as that is the most immediate danger rather than worrying too much about a serious accident scenario. I always have my car doors locked when driving.
