DON’T BE INTRUSIVE!

YOU MAY NOT BE DRIVING, BUT THE OTHERS ARE!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorways are equipped with lay-bays and parking areas where, if needed, you can station in full safety. Sometimes, however, an irreparable damage may leave you mid-way between two lay-bays, which means you are forced to stop along the emergency lane or even just on the edge of the road, in case of breakdown or sudden illness of the driver. According to the Road Code, you are allowed to stop on the emergency lane to cope with the emergency, but in no case for more than 3 hours. Actually, a stop along the edge of the road need to be surely much shorter than that, as it is an extremely dangerous situation, due to the difference of speed between ap- proaching vehicles and pedestrians. It is crucial to stop as close on the right as possible, using light indicators, and make yourself visible by wearing reflective jackets before getting out of the ve- hicle - this means you must have it at hand inside the cabin, and not in the boot. In case of poor visibility, everyone inside the ve- hicle should get out of it and stay as close to the right edge of the road as possible, to prevent them from being run over or in- jured. If possible, the passengers should find a safe place beyond guard rails - but watch out before stepping over it, above all at night: you might be on a road bridge or an overhead road! Pe- destrian must never enter the lane. They can walk on the emer- gency lanes only to reach an emergency phones station.

When?
All the time during emergency stops.
What?
If you are stationed on the emergency lane or on the edge of the motorway, or even in a lay-bay, try to stop your vehicle as far as possible from the lane where vehicles are travelling. Never cross the virtual border between safety and carelessness. Always wear your reflective jacket, press the emergency indicator button, secure all passengers, and constantly monitor children.
Why?
Speed difference is a great danger. Motorways are much safer than other kinds of roads, not only because there are no crossroads and pedestrians, but also because vehicle speed is rather even. This is why great motorway facilities such as Turin- Milan, Savona-Ventimiglia motorways and others have experi- enced years with no fatalities. When a vehicle is on an emergency stop, speed difference is huge, and much higher than on other kinds of roads. Remember that drivers might be inattentive or may not see you. As a result, you could be run over, or vehicles could be forced to swerve to avoid you. Sometimes even blasts might be enough to make you stumble, or inattentive drivers may approach too much or even cross the right edge line. Facilities and security systems alone don’t make motorway 100% safe: the attention and common sense of users are the key ingredients. Underestimating a risk or be inattentive might have a very high cost for yourself and the others.

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.

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.

Drug

DO YOU KNOW THAT DRIVING A GUN IS A CRIME?

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have undertaken to design, construct and manage high-quality roads so that they can be safe and comfortable. However, no road is straight enough when you took drugs that are likely to alter your consciousness. Driving when your senses are altered is more than a risky BEHAVIOUR: it's a criminal attitude. Be careful even when you take small quantities of narcotics, because they can slow down your response. The Road Police fights said behaviours as totally opposing common sense, if not criminal, with very strict controls.

When?
Whenever you are about to drive.
What?
Never drive under the influence of drugs or narcotics: avoid it. Let others drive or stop to have a good rest.
Why?
The use of drugs decreases your mental abilities, reduces your concentration and your ability to assess distances and speeds. Your vision is reduced both frontally and laterally, and your sensitivity to dazzling in night driving is increased.
Drugs are likely to slow down or even hinder your response and can induce hallucinations. The latter cause reckless reactions to unforeseeing situations, even imaginary ones, thereby entailing serious risks for you and the other users.
