Drivers of vehicles have always needed a place to stop and rest. That’s why many variations of the common gas stations, parking lots and bike racks have been made--to appease those tired and angry motorists. These 15 trends show just what can become of rest stations when the human race really puts its collective mind to it.
Implications - Rest stops, traditionally, have been places meant only for a quick bathroom break and perhaps a small snack. As such, costs of maintaining a rest stop have been minimal -- and so, too, are the revenues gained. Turning rest stations into retail-like operations that offer more amenities, services and products could mean that travelers will stop to spend more of their time, and therefore, more of their money.
