Take a look at America’s playbook

SERIOUSLY all our roads ministers, state and federal, need to do a road trip around the USA and see how real rest areas are built.

They are separate areas in most for trucks, cars and cars with trailers - there's even pet exercise areas.

Vending machines with 24/7 security cameras of course and on site cleaners, LCD displays of travel and weather conditions and the bigger ones have free wi-fi.

But most of ours outside Victoria don't even have flushing toilets although the bottom section of the Hume is getting better for that.

Some other roads I've been on we are expected to park in a dust bowl and use the back of a tree as a toilet well it's time all levels of government learned we are humans and like it or not there is more females in the industry as well as travelling the country for pleasure everyday.

Wake up Australia, you've been sleeping in.
