There is no one answer to this question as there are several different ways that highway hypnosis may work. One potential explanation is that when a person is driving, their brain is focused on the task at hand, which leaves less room for other thoughts or distractions. This may lead to a state of relaxation and calm, similar to that which is often experienced during meditation. Additionally, the monotony of driving on a highway may lead to a sense of drowsiness or sleepiness, which can contribute to the feeling of highway hypnosis.
