APH Compares Service Stations on UK’s Busiest Motorways and Roads

According to a recent study by Loughborough University*, even mild dehydration when driving is equivalent to being over the (alcoholic) drink driving limit in terms of recording driver errors, with dehydration doubling the number of driving accidents in the study. Therefore, Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) is encouraging drivers to stay well-rested and hydrated when on the road by sharing updated service station facilities on some of the UK’s busiest motorways and roads.
