Car Mezuzah

There is a comparatively modern spiritual object being sold today known as a "Car Mezuzah." Quite simply, it is a Mezuzah that is particularly created to be placed inside a car. Typically, the responsibility in hanging a Mezuzah is only in one’s home. Although, the question persists in whether there is any kind of Mitzvah gratification, or even protection from peril, in placing a Mezuzah inside a car.
In recent times, there are a lot of temples and Jewish Stores selling this fresh modern Judaic object. A lot of Jewish people are beginning to look up to the assorted forms and materials of car Mezuzahs that are being distributed.

What is a Mezuzah?
To begin with, a Mezuzah is a roll of parchment, which has writings of certain scriptures from the Torah.  A Mezuzah is normally affixed to the door posts in every Jewish home. The word itself means "doorposts". There are nevertheless some rules in regard to the production of a Mezuzah. It should be written in Kosher source of parchment, inscribed by a trained Sofer Stam(inscriber), with the use of an  inedible black ink with an extraordinary quill, which has  verses from the Torah, specifically the Shema  and the Vehaya.

Originally, Mezuzahs is placed in a protective case, usually attractively designed with long-lasting materials as an ornament, called Mezuzot. They are then placed or hung on the doorposts of every room of a Jewish home, business place or property, leaving out the toilet and bathroom. The act of hanging a Mezuzah is a Mitzvah, which means it's a Jews biblical commandment. The verses of Shema and Vehaya both mentions about the need to hang them on the door posts. It is fundamentally used to remind them about God's presence, and simultaneously as an assurance to receive his compensation.

A lot of modern Jews consider that the same should be done with cars - thus the creation of the car Mezuzah. They are mounted on either dashboards or hanged at the inner part of a car door. The car Mezuzah is designed equally the same way, by real inscribers. This is significant because the Mezuzah will become invalid if the writings on it are wrong.
There are a lot of hypotheses whether it is really essential or not to have a car Mezuzah. Nevertheless, it is entirely the choice of the individual to buy and hang one inside their vehicle. Most car Mezuzah and car Mezuzot are created with decorative cases carved with Hebrew letters. They are also often times created out of valuable materials and garnished with decorative jewels. Some car Mezuzah even contains the traveling prayer from the Torah carved to its casing as a security to drivers.

It is difficult to see how a Car Mezuzah serves as a recollection of the Mitzvah since cars are never obliged to the Mezuzahs. It appears to be considerably more similar to the case of a portable Mezuzah which, it appears clear, serves no purpose at all.
