A service area is a rest area along the highway with sometimes a gas station. restaurant and/or a hotel. Some service areas contain an electric charging facility. This facility should be mapped separately as an area place and have its separate access and exit PLR's. Just like a traditional gas station.

Only the entrance PLR segment should have a street name (name of the service area), no city.
