Phobia of Driving with Open Car Windows

I have a fear of driving with the car windows open. It wasn't like this when I was younger, only more recently has it came into play.
I'm fine if the car isn't moving, and if the only window open is the drivers window (unless I am driving).

I don't think there is a certain phobia name for it, as I can't find it anywhere. But, it's something that really bothers me and scares me just thinking about it.

I wouldn't say the entire basis of this fear is on being sucked out the window, something flying in or something flying out. I do get scared thinking about getting sucked out or something flying out. But, it's not the main reason why I'm scared. To be honest, I don't even know the main reason.

The fear has started a couple years back, I never had a traumatic experience or anything. And I don't think it has to do with the fact that I'm soon to be the age of legally being able to drive. If it stemmed from me being of age to drive than I would be scared of driving in general, not just the windows being opened while driving.

I don't know, it's just something I know that I'm scared of. I've also read that a couple people do have a similar phobia of driving with open car windows. But, I don't think it's popular enough to have a name for it yet.
