Boring roads in Australia

Some roads in Australia are so boring, that the government has put traffic signs with questions from Trivia to avoid boredom.

Although people, in general, think that Australia was discovered by British people, the first documented and undisputed European landing on Australia was in late February 1606, by the Dutch navigator  Willem Janszoon aboard the Duyfken. He put Australia on a map and met with Aboriginal people. Australia is a continent with strange animals, deadly insects, and endless roads. The roads may be so boring that the Government of Queensland, to prevent car accidents, has set up a series of traffic signs that make drivers be more alert.

We don’t know if this idea has led to a reduction of accidents. The only problem that we can find in this approach is that once you know the answers, the road becomes boring again, but if the idea turns to be successful, perhaps they will change the questions on the roads.
