In brief: Absolutely
Avoid reading in the car and playing cards.
Activities that involve focusing on a stationary object will create confusion for the brain, which can "sense" movement but not "see" it. The "conflict" between what is "sensed" and what is actually being "seen" is what causes the motion sickness. Sitting in the front passenger's seat can also prevent motion sickness.
