Highway Hypnosis

I don't have a tip but I have question. Why do I get heavy eyed when driving even after getting enough sleep? Also, any tips on how to prevent this?

Highway Hypnosis NEW
by: Steve A. Mangram Sr.

This is a good question. As a OTR driver (ret) i found that if i was driving across Nebraska I would be super sleepy within the first hour, and here's the kicker, it would only happen when I was headed west bound, east bound i was fine. My friend a fellow truck said that it was probably because sub consciously pre programed my brain to be bored and so my brain would basically just shut down to conserve energy.

You might want to get your thyroid checked out. I was also wondering if it only occurred when you drive?
