Malaysia’s Works Minister has announced a new government-sponsored roadside massage program, the BBC reports.:
Malaysia has opened a motorway drive-in massage centre, with the aim of reducing road accidents by relaxing stressed-out drivers.
Drivers have to realise “the importance of stopping to have a rest”, Works Minister Samy Vellu told Malaysia’s Bernama news agency.
The new centre is on the North-South Highway, which stretches the length of Peninsular Malaysia.
The government confirmed a second centre will open in a few months’ time.
Hundreds of thousands of Malaysians commute along a web of highways daily, but accidents - and deaths - typically rise during extended holidays when millions leave the capital, Kuala Lumpur, and other major cities.
It was not immediately clear whether road users would have to pay for services at the massage centre.
