There’s no better way to avoid highway hypnosis than to keep up with your favorite Olympic athletes and sports this month. Highway Hypnosis, also known as White Line Fever, happens when a driver spaces out or loses focus while driving. The moments can last briefly, but can also last over the course of many miles without even realizing it and jeopardizing safety.
Highway hypnosis does not discriminate. It can happen to new drivers and seasoned drivers as well. With this in mind, every driver needs to take steps to avoid the harmful potential effects.
One way to avoid highway hypnosis is to keep your mind engaged. During the month of February, there’s no better way to stay engaged than to keep up with what’s happening in Pyeongchang, South Korea. You can follow the Olympics here for a list of all the events, athletes and schedule. Which sport will you be following closely this year? The bobsledding is always exciting.
Opening your window to get fresh air like an Olympic bobsledder will help you feel fresh and keep a clear mind. Fresh air gives you a feeling of invigoration and awakes your mind to avoid highway hypnosis.
Your smartphone can help you keep up with updates at your stops. You can also engage with other drivers or family members who are keeping up with Olympic results as well.
The Winter Olympics are the perfect way to avoid Highway Hypnosis this winter. Nobody ever said truck driving needed to be boring. Come see us at Bulldog Truck Sales today.Posted on behalf of Bulldog Truck Sales
