The extensive PDF of the service area check breaks down state by state which of the service areas tested performed well and which failed completely.
The maps in the PDF show how the federal states have performed in areas such as road safety, family-friendliness, accessibility as well as cleanliness and hygiene – but only at rest stops that even have a toilet.
In some categories, the new federal states perform significantly better. When it comes to cleanliness, there is a need for improvement, especially in Bremen and Rhineland-Palatinate. Nationwide, rest areas without a toilet fare worse than those with a toilet.
