Boring ? Boring? What's that?  Not in my vocabulary !
When will they ever learn !!?? Driving is never boring. It's the failure to see what's going past you that's the problem. 
Boredom is just an hypothetical construct devised by lazy people who feel they need to be entertained all the time without bothering to exercise their own brains except to complain.
 Nothing in this great land of ours is uninteresting, it's all fascinating.
Just open your eyes people.
And if blasting along at 110kph makes you miss things then don't blast along at 110kph.
And whatever you do, don't fly, that way you miss everything !
