A condition one gets when you can't stop driving to a known or unknown destination. This usually occurs after prolonged driving. The "fever" usually sets in just before dusk and often only ends when the final destination is achieved.
I can't pullover because I've got driving fever. I was only going to drive 700 miles today and drive the final 400 miles home tomorrow but I got driving fever and drove all the way home.
