Of course, this might mellowed by the thought that the supermarkets are well-aware of their potential as alternatives to motorway service areas etc. Tescos in particular produced a booklet listing all their stores in relation to the national trunk-road/motorway network & the services/facillities on offer. A pretty clear incitement to get drivers to break journeys with them? Whilst with the stupid prices that most official service areas charge, one that many drivers are happy to take-up. Sainsbury too seem to give access from the main-road network a fair priority when siting a store & tend to ensure the store is either visible from or well-signed on adjacent roads.
