Kinetophobia, or kinesophobia, is a fear of movement, either of oneself or other things. The fear is suffered due to the feeling that a person could lose control or collide with other people or things, which can cause injury. Amaxophobia, the fear of riding in a car, is a branch of kinetophobia.
The term kinetophobia is derived from the Greek kinein "move" and phóbos "fear".
