Safety distance!!! ... Please ...

DISTANCE MEANS SAFETY! EVEN WHEN YOU'RE QUEUING...

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have to coordinate their work with the Road Police, the Fire brigades and the 118 First Aid Units. Moreover, Motorway Operators coordinate the actions of emergency wreckers. A timely intervention of emergency units allows to handle emergencies quickly and contributes to save lives. If you fail to keep a correct distance from the vehicle before you, not only will you never be able to manoeuvre yours, but you will even hinder the passage of emergency vehicles. We'll rush to help you, but you have to clear the passage for us – so, don't drive too close to the vehicle before you.

When? When you're queuing.
What? Safety distance is essential to avoid accidents and guarantee free access to emergency vehicles. Don't stop too close to the vehicle before you, stop on the right and never station in the overtaking lane.
Why? In the absence of an emergency lane, spacing is essential to favour manoeuvres, thereby allowing the passage of emergency vehicles.
Although they are designed to meet the highest safety standards, European motorway tunnels usually lack in emergency lanes, as they are not included in the safety standards of common interest by the European institutions..

Snow

WINTER TYRES & TYRE CHAINS, PLEASE!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have undertaken to ensure a good level of grip and evenness of the motorway pavement through maintenance works and periodical survey campaigns monitored by the Independent Supervisory Authority (IVCA/ANAS). In the operational phase, Motorway Operators ensure smooth winter viability through salt spreading and removal of snow from the carriageway.
There are days when the mountainous nature of Italy tries to regain control over human projects and works.In such days, the Road Police and the Operator are forced to lean over backwards to manage all traffic issues. They collaborate with "Viabilità Italia", the national centre for viability coordination at the Ministry of Internal affaires, chaired by the Director of the Road Police Services.
In addition, the centre includes the presence of representatives from the Fire Brigades of the Emergency Service and Civil Defence Department, the Department of Public Security and Department of territorial and internal affairs, the Ministry of Infrastructures, the Ministry of Transports, the Civil Protection Department, Carabinieri, Anas, Associazione Italiana Società Concessionarie Autostrade e Trafori (Aiscat) and National Railways; last but not least, the activities of the centre are supported by IVCA and ANCI.
We invest our resources. We get organized and try to be ready to face winter-related issues.However, when it snows, no road is rough enough if you drive on it with unsuitable tyres.
One single vehicle stationing sideways in the snow is enough to make things difficult, when not impossible.In such conditions, arterial motorways get blocked by frost and many people are exposed to enormous hardships and personal risks.

When?
In winter months.
What?
Before driving on motorways, look for information on viability (some stretches must be driven through with winter tyres only). If you are a frequent driver, it is convenient to replace summer tyres with the most suitable winter types designed for snow and wet roadbed. Winter tyres are designed to endure chill and to be able to ensure the right grip on road surfaces covered with snow. If you are a casual driver, always carry tyre chains with you, ready for prompt use. They should be used on roads covered with snow only, otherwise you risk jeopardizing driving safety and damaging the roadbed.
Why?
When turning or braking on snow-covered roads, your car shows a lower grip. In addition to that, the snow packed on the roof might shift on the windshield while braking, thereby reducing your visibility. If possible, you'd better remove it before leaving, just as any ice crust on your windshield, either through an antifreeze or a suitable scraper.
However, it's crucial never to be caught by surprise by snow. You could be driving a heavy truck having problems and have to stop in the middle of the road, thereby blocking the whole route and creating risks for everybody and damage and discomfort for many.

Access to our motorways is permitted to quick-minded drivers only!

TAKE A STOP

WE 4 YOU
When you drive, you'd better be "off alone than in bad company". Remember: when "weariness" is your travel mate, then you're in very bad company.

This is why Motorway Operators designed rest areas, service stations, parking areas and emergency bays to be located at predetermined distances. Although the Italian territory is rich in mountains and deep valleys, where this kind of safety feature can be barely provided, we dedicate ourselves and our investments in keeping you safe. In return, you are asked to make use of all the means you are offered. Don't wait until it's too late to pull in a service station and have a rest.

When?
Especially during long journeys.
What?
Lapses of attention on the motorway, due to, e.g., a sense of drowsiness caused by a combination of repetitive visual stimuli and fatigue, are one of the greatest dangers ever to affect drivers. When you travel long distances, it is appropriate to stop frequently and have short breaks or do some exercises. To train your eyes, read road signs or shift your gaze to various points of the carriageway. If you can't keep your head up or perceive a loss of concentration, even a minimum one, that means you need TO STOP. Rest a bit! Just the time necessary for a 10 or 20 minute rest and then you can drive on.
Why?
The motorway system is designed to be very safe, provided that the drivers are attentive. A slight distraction might cost very dear to you and the other users.

Hauliers

St TACHOGRAPH PROTECTS YOU

WE 4 YOU
When you drive, you'd better be "off alone than in bad company". Remember: when "weariness" is your travel mate, then you're in very bad company. In addition, hauliers bear the great responsibility deriving from their technical preparation and the masses at stake.

When?
When driving commercial and industrial vehicles.
What?
The tachograph must necessarily be installed on vehicles intended for the transportation of goods with a gross weight exceeding 3.5 tons (trucks, lorries, articulated vehicles) or for the transportation of more than 9 passengers including the driver (buses, articulated buses). The tachograph is intended to show and record the data concerning all trips of this type of vehicles and the drivers' working time
Why?
The use of the tachograph allows to control driving and rest times of the driver, as well as to improve the drivers' working conditions and, consequently, road safety. Moreover, it ensures a fairer competition between transport companies.

A driver driving heavy-goods vehicles without complying with working hours and rest periods provided for by the regulation is a serious risk for his own life and the life of the other road users. The tachograph is not a limit but an opportunity to protect you and the others.
