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.

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..

Distraction: on the cell phone, on GPS...

WHO'S TO BLAME

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have provided tunnels with cell phone networks. However, use it responsibly!! While it is a very useful service in case of emergency and an extra comfort for passengers, for drivers talking on the cell phone it entails a chance to be involved in an accident fivefold as high. It is forbidden for drivers to use radio-telephone devices and headphones to listen to music. The use of hand-free devices (including earphones) is allowed as long as drivers maintain their whole ability to hear from both ears and there is no need to use hands to operate them. Stop in a service station to dial numbers, and remember: never read nor write texts while driving!! Choose life.

When?
Whenever you're driving.
What?
Never exclude the possibility of unforeseen events. Always manoeuvre your vehicle carefully and pay attention to the movement of obstacles in your scenario. Avoid any distraction due to the use of your cell phone, navigator or other devices. Plan your trip before leaving and stop in a safe place if you need further information. If you need to send a text, stop in full safety in a service station. Whenever in real urgent need, stop in an emergency bay only for the time needed to do what might divert your attention from driving.
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.

Sleepy ... Maybe you make it.

DO YOU REALLY MEAN TO BET YOUR FRIENDS' LIVES TO FIND IT OUT?

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?
Whenever you drive a car you shouldn't be altered by weariness or other factors.
What?
When you drive, you should be completely awake to prevent drowsiness, a sudden trouble which is seldom announced by precursory signs.
At the first signs of weariness, pull immediately in a service station. Have regular rests of 10/20 min every two hours, even if you feel rested.

Why?
Sleep and weariness are among the most insidious enemies of drivers. It is estimated that they are the cause of 15 to 40% of the most serious accidents, most of the times associated with precise concurrent causes, such as alcohol and drugs use or heavy meals. Moreover, numberless accidents are avoided by a whisker. We feel rather classist in saying this but we want only "quick minded" drivers on our motorways. Help us and choose life.
