WHEN YOU ENTER...BE RESPECTFUL...

AND COMPLIANT WITH PRIORITY RULES

WE 4 YOU
Since the design phase, ASTM-SIAS operators guaranteed an appropriate marking at motorway crossings, with ac- celeration and deceleration lanes. Variable message signs placed at entry points and along the motorway provide drivers with real time information on traffic and safety problems which might have emerged.As you enter a motorway, remember to be extremely ca- reful, comply with speed limits, drive along the whole ac- celeration lane before passing on another one, in order to have the same speed as the other vehicles and, above all, give priority to traffic approaching on your left. Art. 154 of the Road Code states that, when you join traffic flows, you must be careful not to cause danger or hinder, taking into account the position, speed and distance of the ap- proaching vehicles.

When?
Whenever you enter a motorway from a crossing, parking area or service station.
What?
Drive along the whole acceleration lane to reach the speed of other vehicles, use light indicators to show the other drivers your manoeuvre and watch out for approaching vehicles, always giving them priority.
Why?
The entering manoeuvre should be as careful as pos- sible because the risk in motorways is usually linked with speed difference among vehicles. Then, it is obvious that these big differences are particularly huge when joining the traffic flow from outside. Namely, watch out for bikes! Because they have a smaller front section, they are more difficult to identify and might give the wrong distance im- pression. Furthermore, you need to be particularly careful when there are bikers along the road because they have no cabin protection around them. This means that forcing bikers to jam on the brakes, maybe with slippery roadbed, may make them fall with terrible consequences for the bi- kers themselves, any passenger and even for the passen- gers of other approaching vehicles.

TAKE OFF YOUR SUNGLASSES!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorways have always been equipped with tunnel-specific lighting systems.

Several Italian laws and a European directive have recently confirmed such choice as being more than suitable.

The lighting systems in our tunnels are specifically sized to ensure safety and comfort in order to balance the effect of transition from open air to the tunnel.
However, an attentive and correct drive is the determinative factor for safety margins.
And don't forget to avoid overspeeding! The tunnel lighting system has been sized to fit the physiological characteristics of human eyes and their capacity to adapt to darkness gradually and considering the speed allowed on the motorway. ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators design tunnel lighting systems to guarantee the highest safety standards at motorway speed limits. So, don't ever exceed them, or you'll put your own safety and the other users' at risk.

When? When approaching tunnel portals 
What? Take off your sunglasses and observe speed limits. 
Why? Sunglasses might keep obstacles hidden. Road and facility features are designed for specific speed limits. When you exceed such limits, you're not driving safe anymore.

Speed limits

CAN YOU MAKE IT OR DO YOU NEED A TUTOR?

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators designed high-performance safety barriers intended both to mitigate the impact of heavy-goods vehicles and be flexible enough against light vehicles, so to redirect swerving vehicles towards the carriageway. However, your own car and the motorway network are not designed to guarantee your safety when you exceed speed limits.Except for special instances, here are the speed limits set for Italian motorways:

- 130 km/h for cars (on dry roads)

- 110 km/h for cars (in the event of rainfalls)

- 100 km/h for buses, 80 km/h for trucks and articulated lorries

These are the maximum speed limits. Nonetheless, you should adjust your speed to external conditions (weather, traffic, road) and to any special restriction indicated for the stretch you drive through. Novice drivers in the first 3 years driving, have additional limits: they never can overpass 100 km/h on main motorways and 90 km/h on other roads.

When?
Whenever you drive
What?
Observe the speed limits set for traffic safety and maintain a speed suitable for the local conditions you encounter.
Why?
Not only does exceeding speed limits increase the risk of collision but, in such an event, it also increases the likelihood of serious or fatal injuries.

I'd like to have a safe and comfortable journey!

BE INFORMED WHEN YOU TRAVEL

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators employ many means and resources to make your journey safe and comfortable and undertake to spread information concerning the motorway stretches falling within their own competence through all means of communication. These user services are made available thanks to the participation of themselves to European programs. One of them is EasyWay, a program co-funded by the European Commission (DG Move), aimed at improving traffic information systems for users through the implementation of intelligent transportation systems.
The Motorway Operators ensure active surveillance throughout motorways from a dedicated traffic control centre open 24/7, especially during the summer exodus for holidays.
Patrols from both the Road Police and Motorway Operator are on non-stop duty on the road to keep an eye on traffic through videocameras and radars.
The Ministry of Infrastructures and Transports, the Road Police and Motorway Operators provides you with the latest information available in real time through dedicated radio channels, traffic lights and variable message signs. Thus, access our information in order not to make our efforts unnecessary and to guarantee yourself the best possible trip.

When?
Before and during a journey
What?
Before leaving, get information on traffic forecasts through the operator's websites of the area you are going to go. You can find links to these sites also on www.autostradafacendo.it or on the Aiscat site (www.aiscat.it). Traffic information is also available on the CCISS site "viaggiare informati" (www.cciss.it) or on the RAI web site (www.traffico.rai.it).
In addition, get the references to the operator's call centers on the Aiscat site so as to be able to contact them during the journey in case of need. Address also to 1518 service, the number of public utility active 24/7 and providing information on the national traffic conditions.
During your journey, if your passengers have no way to use an internet connection, tune on the radio channels broadcasting information on traffic, which you can also find on the variable message signs on the motorway.

Why?
To avoid unforeseen events and make your travel conditions and those of the others safer and more comfortable.
