Try it again on your VTEC. Tell somebody to pump up the boom box and see how it feels..

I do in these cases -
# Twisty mountain roads, if I'm NOT looking straight ahead, irrespective of seating position.
# If I read while being driven around

But then I rarely get driven around ..

i dont get sick @backseat / passenger side front seat.

but i have weird problem. even if my dad / brother is driving i tend to reach out for the brakes/clutch (virtual left one) and sometimes even reach out for the hand brake / gear lever / steering wheel / wiper knob / switch (wiper - only when it is raining). i dunno why this happens but i really cant help it. it angers my dad / brother ... because they have their own driving style and so as i. this difference is the main problem - i guess.

those who have been @kolkata, and have taken the EM ByPass (its a long stretch connecting Kolkata to Salt Lake city) and it mainly remains almost empty after 9pm. and if my dad is at the wheel, he tends to drive @40KPH (max) and that makes me sick.

I dont know driving (that must be a surprise in these forums) but i do get car-sick in some cars when the AC is on with all the windows rolled up. I always thought that it had to do with some leakage in the AC gas in that car.

I get car sick if i sit in the back seat and in vehicles where the seat is facing away or sideways from the direction of travel, I have absolutely no issues while sitting in the driving seat or co-driver's seat, like GTO said maybe we are meant to be drivers only.

Only issue is I prefer travelling with the ac on especially on hot afternoons.
Word for word ditto. Can go on and on ( once drove to Goa Non Stop from bombay in 9 hrs flat in a Scorpio, stopping only to take a leak or once to eat) Cant sleep if im not driving ( not that I sleep if I am) and then am making sure the driver's not drowzy. I love driving (like all of us here) and will willingly take on the wheel of a cars good. The wife and kids( two boys, 10 and 7) are quite bad. nausea gets into them as soon as we leave the city so have plenty of ammo (motion sickness tabs) ready with me whenevr we drive for a holiday. Remember when the wife and me were on a driving holiday in Newzealand, she was throwing up every 15-20 minutes coz of the winding mountain roads, we were like Hansel and Gratel leaving behind trail marks (only in this she was leaving puike parks instead of pebbles)

I don't get car sick at all. I can travel in any seat of a car all day long without any trouble, whoever the driver, whatever the road.
Ofcourse, I may get cramps in my legs if I sit too long in very small cars like the Zen, 800, etc.

When I'm not driving - I'm actually more relaxed and tension free
Though I prefer to be a passenger on front seat rather than back seat.

Getting sick for reasons below:

- Diesel fumes
- Me in the front passenger seat and the driver taking a sweeping turn
(like a 'u')
- The moment inside a SUV, because of the floating feeling
- Hairpin bends are equally scary. Puking is compulsory
- Somebody put on a strong deo / perfume

I don't get car-sick, but I am extremely uncomfortable, bored and impatient when I am passenger. On the other hand, I can drive for hours together without realizing how much time has passed. Driving is totally relaxing and keeps my mind fully occupied. Sitting in a Cool Cab or Volvo bus that plods along at 80 kmph on the Expressway and takes 3.5+ hours for doing Pune-Mumbai is sheer torture for me.
