Lorry drivers can breathe oxygen enriched air to revive them on long hauls that take them through a variety of landscapes.
And now it seems those going through Oxfordshire will soon be able to avoid narrow villages when the county council distributes new maps to ease lorry traffic in rural areas, the BBC reported.
Oxfordshire county council has produced the maps for haulage firms to ensure HGV motorists plan more efficient routes to put a stop to the "ongoing problem" of oversized vehicles travelling through small hubs.
The BBC quoted a council statement as saying: "What we have now done for the first time is to draw up a comprehensive map of routes which indicates how suitable they are for HGVs."
Towns included on the informative maps are Witney, Wallingford, Bicester and Banbury, with the move welcomed by the Freight Transport Association (FTA).
FTA spokesman James Hookham told the news provider: "This is the sort of information lorry drivers need."
