CAN TEXTING SAVE YOUR LIFE?

IT CAN...IF YOU DON'T DO IT!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators collaborate with telephone operators and provide coverage for cell phones along their own road network. It is quite a useful service in case of emergency, and a convenience for passengers. Nonetheless, not only is it forbidden to use your mobile phone while driving, but it also in- creases the risk of accidents by 5 times. A telephone call may divert your attention from driving, but texting is 20 times more dangerous. It's not distraction, it's an irresponsible act! While a downturn is observed in the trend of some other risky behaviours, for this one an increase is recorded, which is directly proportional to the informatic equipment available to the drivers. Many na- tional governments are taking severe measures to oppose such bad behaviour. When you're driving, you should drive only and nothing more!

When?
All the time, when you're driving.
What?
Always focus your attention on the road, keep your hands on the steering wheel and never use electronic com- munication devices.
Why?
Recent surveys (by IPSOS) highlight that 76% of Italian people identify the human factor, namely distraction and non compliance with the Road Code, as the main cause of road accidents. Among the most dangerous activities: talk- ing on the cell phone (50%), dialling a telephone number (45%), and texting (76%). The youngest drivers (between 18 and 24) are the ones who text the most when driving. Some US researches show that texting while driving increase the risk of accident by 23 times. As a matter of fact, you turn away from the road for 4,6 seconds when texting, which means (at 50 km/h) driving the length of a football field without looking. Since March 2012, the Italian law introduced stricter pro- visions on the use of cell phones while driving, thus recog- nizing the risk inherent in such action. Therefore, if you have to send a text message, pull in a service station and park safely. The motorway system is safe as long as the drivers are careful. Any distraction or carelessness may have a great cost for yourself and for the others - because road doesn’t spare the inattentive people.

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.

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.

Cargo loss

ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO RISK THEIR LIVES?

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS motorways were designed with wide bending radii in order to allow suitable visibility and good driving comfort. Nonetheless, unexpected events are just round the corner. An accident, or even just a heavy braking suddenly reduce the speed of a vehicle. When a cargo, may it be inside or outside a vehicle, is unduly secured, it starts shifting even roughly against you or the others. Cargo loss from heavy trucks is a type of accident increasing in frequency and seriousness of consequences. When driving a light vehicle, remember that skis are subject to strong wind pressure due to blowing air that are likely to free them from fittings. Read carefully the instructions by the ski rack manufacturer because they usually speed restrictions that might be different from standard motorway journey criteria. is getting looser as you drive on, stop as soon as you find a fully safe environment and check for it.... and, above all, secure it duly before leaving. Your life and the others' is in your hands. Choose life.

When?
Whenever you carry a cargo.
What?
Check for any internal and external cargo to be duly secured before leaving in order to prevent any damage and injuries to other road users, yourself and your passengers. Before deciding that a cargo is duly secured, remember that its weight is multiplied by about 22 times when hitting an obstacle at 50 km/h. This means the fastening supports must be able to counteract a force equal to 1/3 of a ton just to hold a 15 kg bicycle and must apply the force needed to hold 80 kg just to hold 3,5 kg skis.
Why?
In the event of collision, any unduly secured cargo shifts by inertia, thereby hitting violently against anything on its trajectory. In ordinary conditions, it either falls on the carriageway or hits other vehicles, thereby causing accidents, or it might upset the balance of the latter when not projected outside the vehicle. Any cargo scattered on the carriageway becomes in its turn a potential risk for the other drivers and for the operators engaged in its removal. The loss of cargo by a heavy truck usually results in the closing of the carriageway, which provokes serious traffic jams.
