I wouldn't think so.
In my mind, waving the Wiimote around wouldn't be the safest of actions, particularly while driving.
Anyone using a Wiimote to control their front end? I think it'd be convenient to hold the trigger and flick your wrist to go to next song or even use it as an infrared mouse.

If you wave your wii remote around while driving in this country you're likely to get arrested.
I saw a gps laptimer that uses the wii remote as an input, so it isn't such a weird question
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
I do agree that waving your arm around while driving is dangerous, but I think that can be changed. I believe you can change the sensitivity so instead of waving the WiiMote like a tennis racket, you could move it just an inch and X would happen (ie, skip to the next track, fast forward 10 sec of video, etc).
I think the WiiMote in a car is a great idea as long as the physical movements are minimal (as I described above). If that can be achieved than we could keep our eyes on the road at all times and use the WiiMote to control the carPC.
The only problem I would have is if the WiiMote was used to move the on-screen mouse. I think that's too distracting (at least for me).
also something bear in mind, is if its just a small movement (increased sensitivity) unless u work out a good mount everytime u change lanes, turn a corner, even move slightly you will be skipping tracks, here there and everywhere
