A majority of kids less than three years old can do it, with boys most often the ones attempting to unhook their seatbelts. More than 40 percent of children who are able to unbuckle the restraints are doing so while the car is moving, prompting many parents to pull over, reprimand and then re-buckle the child, according to the study.
