1. A very contagious fever that causes the responsible driving part of the brain to slip out of consciousness. Caught while driving on major Highways such as Trans Canada or Interstate.
Symptoms: Driving very fast, excessive passing on the opposite lane and tailgating at 100km/h.
The risk of Hwy Fever increases with prolonged driving on the Highway. Worst when combined with city driving and drowsiness.
We ended the road trip in a dazed state with severe Hwy Fever only snapping into consciousness when a passenger pointed out we were hitting 180 km/h.
