Default Do you get car-sick?

While travelling on the backseat? I just realised that I cannot sit on the backseat for too long.....I actually get car sick and all whoozy / pukey!!! Whats funnier is that this happens within the city. So the only option I have when being chauffeured around is to take the front seat.

I guess we car guys are only made to drive. And not be driven around.

I don't get car sick not even on twisties & mountain routes. But if I have to sit in the car for too long & can't drive it then I do get depressed & all broody!! Can't help it's just a natural reaction, I HAVE to drive the car if I'm sitting in it!

Not one bit. I have no issues with long drives, twisty drives, bad road drives, Volvo B7R drives, and a massive appetite for G forces. Unless I'm under some sort of medication, then it's a different scenario.

I get car-sick if I have to sit on back-seats for more than 20 minutes for 2 reasons. 1) I have no control over the car and 2) no control over the music either.
But in evening, forget front seats or back seats, I would be happier sitting even in boot then on driving seat..thanks to traffic jams at Badarpur and Kalindi Kunj ( I travel from Faridabad to NOIDA daily).

No issues at all while travelling/driving and can go on and on and on... in this respect.Dont like sleeping in the car and am usually entrusted the duty of ensuring our driver is awake [if I am not driving that is].Back seat/front seat/backward facing seats no problem for me.

Only issue is I prefer travelling with the ac on especially on hot afternoons.

I cannt even sit in the front seats for long , it helps little to have the AC at full blast ,but not for long.
The same applies to me for buses ,airplane ...train is an exception .
I hate the smell inside the cars and buses it makes me puke .
It has to be open top with fresh air gushing in always otherwise i can stand it .
