If you’ve ever been on a long road trip and suddenly realize a few miles have passed by with you barely noticing, you’ve experienced highway hypnosis. This phenomenon, also known as automatic driving, is a contributing factor to a number of distracted driving accidents; however, it’s not discussed as often as issues like texting and driving or paying more attention to the controls inside the vehicle than what’s going on outside.
