Fire!! In a tunnel...

RUN! DON'T GO BACK FOR YOUR BELONGINGS!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators equipped all tunnels longer than 1,000 m with a mechanical ventilation systems.
A recently approved European directive and the Italian law confirmed the criteria so far adopted.
The ventilation systems in our tunnels are rather powerful. However, in the event of a main fire, smoke might be beyond the control of the ventilation system or the Fire brigades. In the early stages of a fire, hot smokes rise upwards; then, as they expand under the tunnel vault, they cool down and that's when they may surround you.
It is unwise to hover about in the fire scene or to go back to recover your belongings. Leave your wallet there and save your life!

When? In the event of a fire in a tunnel, especially when heavy-goods vehicles are involved.
What? Stop along the right edge of the carriageway, clear the overtaking lane and leave enough room for the rescuers to pass. Wear your reflective jacket, get out of your vehicle and don't bother about your belongings. Run along the emergency shoulders or through the by–passes leading to the next tunnel. When you're driving in open air, stop safely in a rest area or in any other safe place. Make sure you're neither on a bridge nor on a steep slope before you decide to jump over the crash barrier - very serious accidents have resulted from such decisions.
Why? Fire might damage the ventilation system. Consequently, poisonous smokes might drift over your head and surround you. A wrong BEHAVIOUR of yours could put your own life and even the rescuers' at risk.

We added further lanes!

YOU'D RATHER USE IT OR NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT TRAFFIC!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Operators provide the users with high-quality, two-carriageway roads with two or three lanes per direction of travel.
Nonetheless, if viewed from above, motorway traffic is sometimes concentrated in the leftside lanes, which would suggest that many users think that rightside lanes were built for somebody else rather than them!Well, not only are overcrowded left lanes odd to be seen, but they actually result in a great misuse of the whole road capacity.
As any misuse, even this one entails actual damages. If users do not exploit road facilities smartly, the road capacity limits will be reached earlier than expected. As a result, drivers will be queuing! And too many queuing phenomena will lead to the need to readjust the roadbed and expand it to three or four lanes, with great economic investments and consumption of land.

When?
Whenever you drive along a motorway.
What?
Try not to have an aggressive or reckless driving. Exploit the road capacity at best, i.e. use all lanes available, and adjust your driving behaviour to the traffic conditions you encounter.
Why?
A smart use of the space available will allow a higher number of vehicles to drive through the road, thereby preventing you from being stuck in traffic jams.
Finally, remember to be watchful on what happens on your rightside. Art. 144 of the new Road Code reads as follows: "Circulation on parallel lanes is admitted in carriageways having at least two lanes per direction of travel when traffic intensity is such that the vehicles crowd any part of carriageway in their direction of travel and their speed is influenced by the vehicles before them". It being understood that overtaking on the right lanes is forbidden, in the event of thick traffic it is common to observe traffic on parallel lines, even on motorways. Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable for a vehicle to travel along its lane on your right at a higher speed than yours.
The Code aims also at streamlining the use of roads. Make the most of what you are offered.

Roadworks: you're getting in my office

OBSERVE THE SPEED LIMITS AND SIGNS, PLEASE

WE 4 YOU
The ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators' mission entails guaranteeing safe circulation on motorways on a continuous basis, as well as further improving the quality of motorway journeys. This is why roadworks for programmed maintenance and emergency recovery are scheduled.
Roadworks are signalled in compliance with law and guarded according the best protection criteria adopted in Italy with a view to ensuring the safety of users, technicians and workers in an environment where speed is undoubtedly a critical factor. Therefore, you are asked to give your own contribution and show respect for the operators and their work. Observe speed limits and pay attention to the road signs, please: you're getting in our office!

When?
Whenever you drive through a motorway stretch under maintenance.
What?
Pay extreme attention to the presence of men at work and roadworks, observe special signing and the speed limits set. 
Why?
To safeguard human lives that could be exposed to serious dangers in case of non-compliance on your part.

Protection?

SUN CREAM IS ANOTHER STORY

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). Operators also pay good attention in trying to design and implement good safety barriers and more recently also work to mitigate the impacts for bikers. Remember though that bikes are the most dangerous means of transport. Every year, 1,500 bikers loose their lives in Italy, including hundreds of excellent and prudent bikers. A relatively small portion of this appalling figure dies as a result of accidents on the motorway. Motorways are designed to be travelled at relatively high speeds and the impact with asphalt and the other elements of street furniture put the bikers who are not wearing appropriate clothing and protections even more at risk.

When?
Whenever you ride a motorbike.
What?
Wear a helmet and suitable clothing, chosen among approved items only. A bike suit will protect the pilot's body and reduce the effects of the fall, as well as increasing the aerodynamic penetration and giving a greater driving comfort. Use other complementary forms of protection in addition to the suit, i.e., boots and gloves, which in most cases are abundantly enriched by different kinds of protective elements. Always remember to fasten your helmet. There are airbag systems inserted inside coats and technical jackets designed to protect the human body in the event of an accident. This system relies on the same principle as car airbags, improved by a protection surrounding all vital parts of the human body (chest, neck, hips and the spine).
Why?
If you're not adequately protected in the event of a fall or accident, you will be exposed to a strong friction with the asphalt that causes severe abrasions. Besides, you could bang your head and other parts of your body against vehicles or other obstacles you might come across.
