Roadside rest area

In an effort to prevent accidents through fatigue when driving long distances on rural highways, roadside rest stops have been established along the route.

Some of these like the one we stopped at for lunch have shelters with tables and seats. Some even have toilets.

This is a "modern" long drop toilet; a clever adaption of the traditional outback dunny. Click here to see a typical outback dunny on one of my past posts.

Very interesting. Yes, for long rides, toilet breaks are important. Am back from KL. :)
