say you know the next services isnt for 8 miles on a motorway and your houdini of a toddler manages to undo her harness and stand up in her seat.. eould you stop on the hard shoulder? or carry on the 8 miles?

I would (and have) stopped.
Wouldn't be able to concentrate for those 8 miles, would be worried child would bounce around or try to crawl into the front, accidentally open the doors or grab the wheel, plus the thought of her going through the windscreen if we crashed.
And I'd also want to reinforce absolutely the rule that we do not move without our belts on.

I dont have a dp but she did it yesterday on the motorway and I didnt know if it counted as an emergency worthy of risking being hit by a car/truck. She subsquently leant over and undid her baby brother so I did stop as I couldnt concentrate at all :(
Sadly at 2.5 she has absolutely no understanding of the danger or consquences :(
