I read this as you're shocked by what you see, lol. It might be the car, or it might be you. For a few months, I had this blanket that must've made me all static-y, because whenever I picked up my phone it would shock me. If I didn't have the blanket, the phone wouldn't shock me. Maybe something like that is happening?

Perhaps someone else has actually heard of this happening..

Its just some static electricity right? I wouldnt be too concerned if its just your standard static.

Every car picks up some amount of static while driving. Learned about it in college.

Yes a grounding strap would help. Its nothing i would worry about too much unless it really bothers you.

A good way to avoid the shocks? Instead of pushing the door closed by the metal trim, I just push against the window. No zaps.
