Mechanisms to relieve the stress of long distance driving across country and the frustration of town driving
I have an idea to relieve the stress of driving, by providing at motorway service stations therapists, who give drivers head and neck massage as well as face and feet, if they feel they need it. On top of this total body massage could be applied, via Shiatsu or Thai massage as they don't require the removal of clothes. These treatments could be done in minutes. It has to be a motorway or major road because it is the effects of long trips that is being countered (Sitting for long periods and staring intensely at monotonous scenery, which is tiring).
On top of this soundproof sleeping booths, with inbuilt alarms, could be used for those needing a little shut eye, in the same way that long distance lorry drivers have in their cabs nowadays.
Lastly, for those caught up in actual road rage, where short but frustrating journeys occur (city driving), a gym should be available by the highway specifically for people to stop and hit a punch bag (rather than another human being) or a track they can round run, to relieve their energy/ frustration.
