While it is handy to have.a place to pull over and rest awhile, the real importance of rest areas is highway safety. An ojsis at intervals along high ways relieves driver tensions and cuts accident statistics. This is not a new idea. Back in the horse-and-buggy days, travelers often pulled to the side of the road to rest Old Dobbin and to get out and stretch their own legs. After they began to drive gasoline buggies, they continued the practice. As cars became speedier and driving distances longer, the need for such driving breaks became greater. This need was met in haphazard fashion by an occasiona hospitable farmer or a club o: thoughtful women providing picnic tables in clearings--roadside parks--along the nation's roads Gradually, highway divisions of most states began to gel easements and assume main tenance of these roadside parks Some were left as they were others were improved. New ones were set up where need seemed to exist. Rest areas that are merely one table under a tree still are needed to supplement sizable areas that accommodate many families at one time. Development of roadside parks was well under way by the 1930s in most states, particularly those with congested highways and traffic safety problems. The Highway Department has been in the Rest Area and Roadside Development business in Idaho since 1935. At the preesent time, Idaho has 33 existing rest areas with complete facilities plus many roadside turnouts and viewpoints. There were three landscaping and two j u n k y a r d screening projects completed in 1966. There are 45 projects planned for construction this year which include rest areas, scenic easements, landscaping and junkyard screening. There are about 160 projects in these categories scheduled to be completed within the next few years State programs were stimulated by Interstate Highway con struction and federal financing of rest areas, with the federal government paying almost 100 er cent of construction costs. The states pay 100 per cent of maintenance, however, and this ·ould become a burden if there are many elaborate rest stops. The Idaho Department of Highways tries to keep a close balance o! the more elaborate and the simple types of rest areas. Plain or fancy, rest stops are good investment in life saving. They send the weary :rave!er back on the road re- 'reshed and alert, ready to continue his journey over Idaho's modern highway system.
