What exactly is Highway Hypnosis?


Highway Hypnosis is a dangerous and real driving hazard that occurs when someone has been driving a vehicle along a stretch of roadway for an extended period of time. The driver becomes unaware and unable to respond due to a semi-hypnotic mental state brought about by the monotony of a long drive.

Highway Hypnosis happens more often than you think. Within 24 hours of this article being written, a teenage boy slammed into the back of a semi trailer. The teen did not apply his brakes, witnesses said, and police determined that the crash was caused by Highway Hypnosis.
