A newspaper excerpt states that 20% of motorway crashes are caused by tiredness, so £9M will be spent telling us to take a rest.
The real percentage is probably rather higher than this. Yet service stations are far apart on most motorways. Most drivers do not want to drive tired, but few will either stop on the hard shoulder or try to find rest facilities in towns they do not know.
Why not redirect the £9M into starting construction of 'aires' as in France? These are little more than protected laybys, but make travel more comfortable and much safer.
Doing gives more permanent benefit than just talking.
