Australia Uses Trivia Signs To Keep Drivers Awake On Long And Boring Roads

In Australia it seems everything is just a bit more dangerous. The animals are bigger, the insects are deadlier, and apparently some roads are so long and boring that the government has had to erect trivia signs in fatigue zones to keep drivers alert and reduce crashes and fatalities. For example, the highway between the cities of Balladonia and Caiguna is one of the longest straight stretches of road in the world, with a whopping 90 miles without a single turn. The question and answer signs are strategically placed about 3 miles apart. The idea of the trivia signs was part of a community projects initiative funded by an $850,000 grant from the Department of Transport to improve road safety.
