NEVER EVER MAKE A DOUBLE OVERTAKING

 

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorways were designed with a geometry adapts to en- sure travelling comfort, speed and safety, as long as you don’t overcome speed limits. Motorway technicians are very attentive in maintaining both road markings and bed in good conditions. However, it is unfair to waste such a commitment, which is aimed at providing wide safety margins to travellers. Motorways are not a Grand Prix route, and road users are not “hurdles”, but people who are travelling in full right of mobility. If stunned by a risky manoeuvre, they could have unpredicted reactions, such as steering or jamming on the brakes. Those who are really “mad” for bikes knows it very well and comply with rules and common sense criteria, keeping themselves and those who travel around them safe. Art. 144 of the Road Code allows to travel in two parallel lines in car- riageways with at least two lanes per direction, when traffic is heavy and speed is linked to and influenced by the presence of other vehicles. Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean you can overtake here and there, as you wish. In these regards, art. 148 of the Road Code states that in roads provided with more than one lane per direction, overtaking is allowed only along the lane on the left of the vehicle you want to pass. Transgressors will be given “heavy” sanctions, including suspen- sion of their driving license. Moreover, we remind you that, thanks to special agreements between ASTM-SIAS companies and the Ministry of the Interiors, www.trip2life.com intense road patrolling is ensured on motorways by dedicated squads of Road Police.

When?
When you’re riding a bike and you see a vehicle overtaking another one.
What?
Comply with speed limits, keep appropriate safety distance, and overtake only when the overtaking lane is free. If so, overtaking on motorways is a safe manoeuvre both for bikers and drivers, no sanctions are applied and, above all, very serious accidents are prevented.
Why?
Although you think you have enough space “to do it” with your bike, the real space between the car you’re trying to overtake and guard rails may not be sufficient. The car is running and the “psycho technical” space, i.e., the space you need to pass a ve- hicle, increases with speed. A small swerve of your bike or of the vehicle you’re overtaking is enough for a crash - if a loose tar- paulin or the wing mirror “hit” the bike handlebars, the biker will be thrown down on the asphalt at 130 km/h, while their bike will fall down, crash on the running car on the overtaking lane, and another vehicle travelling along the right lane...my God! You’d rather be a little patient and wait some seconds to make a safe overtaking (with no sanctions) than gain a bunch of minutes putting your life and the others’ at risk.

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.

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.

On the motorway

TURN FORBIDDEN

WE 4 YOU
Since the earliest phases of a project, ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators prepare two-carriageway motorways with physical separation of the two traffic flows. This type of measure allows to ensure a high level of safety, provided that you respect the signs and never make a U-turn on a motorway, especially in case of traffic jam or accident/fire in a tunnel.

When?
When travelling on a motorway.
What?
Never make a U-turn or reverse on the carriageway. In case of traffic jam or accident in a tunnel, stop on the right edge of the carriageway and, in the event of fire, leave the vehicle, if appropriate.
Why?
Drivers who are driving in the proper direction do not expect to meet vehicles travelling contra-flow. Therefore, because they are likely to be unable to stop in time and avoid a collision or shirk your vehicle, they will put their own life and the lives of others at risk.
