Attention to ‘Road hypnosis’ on a long way on the feast! Psychiatrist Dr. Onur Okan Demirci warning against the ‘road hypnosis’ drivers who will set off on a long journey during the Eid al-Adha holiday, said: “We call road hypnosis, which becomes a hypnotic trance that develops as we look at the lines on the road. Road hypnosis plays a serious role in fatal accidents. Get your sleep one night before, take a break frequently, get out of the car and walk. Turn up the sound of music, do not choose the way you use constantly. Do not travel at night.” Dr. Onur Okan Demirci, from Istanbul Gelisim University, who warned the drivers who will set off on a long journey during the Eid al-Adha holiday to take precautions against road hypnosis, said: “We call road hypnosis, which becomes a hypnotic trance that develops as we look at the lines on the road. The driver goes into half sleep mode. While the brain is awake in half-sleep mode, it cannot perform certain functions that it serially brings, it slows down. Their reaction takes longer, we can say white line fire.” You can visit www.gelisim.edu.tr to see the detailed news.
