September 1987 I was driving a limousine 20 Hours per day 7 days per week for about 5 months. I only received about 4 hours of sleep per day. One night while I was sleeping my wife at that time nudged me to wake me up. She said "Joe,look what you are doing" I said "What". She said "look what you are doing". I was totally shocked when I realized what I was doing. I was sitting in the bed with my hands in front of me in the maner of holding a steering wheel of a motor vehicle. This prooved to me that I was driving while I was sleeping and may have been sleeping while I was driving (Whiteline Syndrome). As a result thereof I cut my work schedule down to 6 days and took vacations more frequently. The point of this article is to not push yourself to hard and to make sure you have balance in your life.
Whiteline Syndrome also is indicated when a person has been driving for extended periods of time and has a tendency to stare at the line while driving which eventually will cause the person to doze off and could possibly hurt himself or others.
