Some people tend to nauseate while sitting at the back of a moving car. This happens because a discrepancy occurs between their visual perception and their vestibular perception. The things inside the car appear stationary to them but their bodies register the motion. The conflict between their senses causes a condition called the motion sickness. Motion sickness makes a person sitting at the back of a moving vehicle feel giddy.

My detuction

sitting in the backseat will lead to an seat infront of you.

by only seeing moving target aside will create a small confusion for the brain

i also have reason to believe that sitting in a car and knowing the destinationwith a person you trust in the driver seat, will reduce the illnes

why?

ask me, cus im lazy to write it all down
