Reasons to wear a mask in the car:-
1) If returning from somewhere you should wear a mask, do you want to take it off before you wash your hands. ?
2) Cars have pollen filters corona virus is 100th of the diameter of pollen so all those nice pedestrians and cyclists breathing out not 3 feet from your car are potentially breathing into your car.
3) Why not ?
I very seriously doubt that you can pass out or suffocate from wearing a mask. If you cut it into pieces, make two rolls, one for each nostril, and stuff the rest down your throat: Maybe. Maybe you could pass out if you run a full marathon with a perfectly fit mask. But sitting still in your car, doing practically no muscle activity? No, it would take a strong confirmation from medical expertice for me to believe in that.
If that was the case, the masks would be outright dangerous as soon as you start doing any sort of muscular activity, and there would be a big outcry. Which we haven't heard.
I have worn the mask today in the car beacuse I was buying in the supermarkt and I had to make a second stop in another shop 500 to 700 meters away. So I didn't take it off because I could couldn't wash my hands.
Once done in the second place, I took it off and drove back home.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I believe that in most states, it is ILLEGAL to wear a face-concealing mask in public! When these laws were passed, they were designed to thwart demonstrators, robbers and the KKK. They are currently being enforced against drivers who are trying to avoid facial recognition by red light and speeder detection cameras.

Sometimes just "glazing over" a bit and looking at the letters, you can read them; (even if first or last letters are "wrong"). A technique my mother taught me was just to write all the letters out in a jumble (not a line, randomly but fairly close) then your brain tries to "follow" the letters to make sense of them. Sometimes seems to work for me!
I've started switching all to bluetooth (printer, keyboard, mouse), wifi, and HDMI (usb as a last resort) which has cleaned up my cabling somewhat. Although right now I'm stuck on ethernet because my wifi dongle isn't working with Ubuntu this time (was last time *shrug*)
