Worth it or wasted: Interstate rest areas

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

While some states around the nation are shutting down rest stops to save money, Florida's Department of Transportation thinks they are important to keep open.

There are 53 throughout the state at 35 sites along the major interstates.

The average annual operating cost is $40,000 a month for just one rest area. Do you think that is worth it, or wasted?
