    car harness/restraint for older child

    My autistic son is 14yo, 59 in. and 128 pounds.
    He becomes very challenging in the car when
    he gets angry. He has reached for the steering
    wheel, thrown things at me, hit and pulled
    hair, and opened the car door. This has all happened
    while we were on the highway.
    I need something that he can't get out of.
    We have tried something similar to the EZ-vest
    on the bus, but he can get out of it in seconds.
    We finally had to measure him for a humane restraint.
    That helps on the bus, but I am wondering what
    is out there for cars.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Silvia

    Did you try the vest that zips up the back? http://www.ezonpro.com/products/fami...est/103z.shtml
