No the compound is 'safe' after about an hour [1], what you must not allow is the inside of the car to 'pressurise, leave a window open when you close any of the car doors for about six hours or so (and I would advise keeping clear of pot holes, so not allowing the shell to twist to much) but normal driving should be OK.
