A 300€ fine for unbelted driving?

YOU MAY PAY A HIGHER PRICE!!

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, don’t forget that motorways are designed to be driven through at relatively high speeds. You cannot even reckon you can resist a collision when unbelted. You know what? You’d rather comply with the road code and wear your seat belts even in town: a vehicle falling from the third floor of a building hits the ground at 50 km/h. Would you jump from the third floor with your car without wearing a seat-belt? Why driving at the same speed unbelted?

When?
Whenever you travel by car, either as a driver or as a passenger.
What?
Your fellow passengers and you must wear safety belts. Before leaving, check that everybody is wearing their safety belts, both in the front and back seats. If there are any children, check that the vehicle is equipped with infant car seats suitable for their height and weight. Remember that babies must never be placed in the front seats.
Why?
In case of collision, any passenger not being firmly attached to the vehicle is bound to be projected outside it at high speed in the driving direction. Be careful!! Don’t think the passengers sitting in the back run no risk. Whoever is not wearing seat belts can be hurled out of the car with very serious consequences.
In addition, uncontrolled movements of unbelted passengers might be dangerous for the others – a person hitting other passengers deadweight might cause very serious damages to themselves and to the others.

Fog is not the real killer

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN, SLOW DOWN AND USE YOUR HEAD!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators ensure active surveillance throughout motorways from a dedicated traffic control centre open 24/7. 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 weather sensors.
The Road Police and Motorway Operator provides you with the latest information available in real time on radio channels, websites and variable message signs.
Nonetheless, weather conditions may reduce visibility in winter, or they might become extremely harsh and change suddenly in space and time. Accordingly, safety on motorways depends even on your careful attention and your capacity to adjust your speed to the actual visibility.

When?
Whenever visibility is poor.
What?
Use your headlights correctly – front fog-lights, rear fog-light and light signals for danger ("the four indicators flashing") – in the event of sudden hold-up.
In case of fog with less than 100 m visibility, drive slower than 50 km/h and keep your speed moderate and steady.
Keep safety distance and check particularly for road marking and signs as certain landmarks.
Do not stop on the emergency lane except for cases of extreme need (vehicle breakdown preventing you to drive on, sudden indisposition, etc.). In such cases, turn on the four indicators and navigation lights, with the red rear fog-light still on.
If you get out of your vehicle, always wear your reflective jacket and stay in a safe position.

Why?
Collisions in fog are rather rare, but they are likely to have particularly serious consequences – many vehicles involved and very serious injuries to people and material damages. Do not drive at a speed higher than what allows you to have a good visibility; avoid any behaviour that might trigger a chain of lethal collisions.

Snow

WINTER TYRES & TYRE CHAINS, PLEASE!

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). In the operational phase, Motorway Operators ensure smooth winter viability through salt spreading and removal of snow from the carriageway.
There are days when the mountainous nature of Italy tries to regain control over human projects and works.In such days, the Road Police and the Operator are forced to lean over backwards to manage all traffic issues. They collaborate with "Viabilità Italia", the national centre for viability coordination at the Ministry of Internal affaires, chaired by the Director of the Road Police Services.
In addition, the centre includes the presence of representatives from the Fire Brigades of the Emergency Service and Civil Defence Department, the Department of Public Security and Department of territorial and internal affairs, the Ministry of Infrastructures, the Ministry of Transports, the Civil Protection Department, Carabinieri, Anas, Associazione Italiana Società Concessionarie Autostrade e Trafori (Aiscat) and National Railways; last but not least, the activities of the centre are supported by IVCA and ANCI.
We invest our resources. We get organized and try to be ready to face winter-related issues.However, when it snows, no road is rough enough if you drive on it with unsuitable tyres.
One single vehicle stationing sideways in the snow is enough to make things difficult, when not impossible.In such conditions, arterial motorways get blocked by frost and many people are exposed to enormous hardships and personal risks.

When?
In winter months.
What?
Before driving on motorways, look for information on viability (some stretches must be driven through with winter tyres only). If you are a frequent driver, it is convenient to replace summer tyres with the most suitable winter types designed for snow and wet roadbed. Winter tyres are designed to endure chill and to be able to ensure the right grip on road surfaces covered with snow. If you are a casual driver, always carry tyre chains with you, ready for prompt use. They should be used on roads covered with snow only, otherwise you risk jeopardizing driving safety and damaging the roadbed.
Why?
When turning or braking on snow-covered roads, your car shows a lower grip. In addition to that, the snow packed on the roof might shift on the windshield while braking, thereby reducing your visibility. If possible, you'd better remove it before leaving, just as any ice crust on your windshield, either through an antifreeze or a suitable scraper.
However, it's crucial never to be caught by surprise by snow. You could be driving a heavy truck having problems and have to stop in the middle of the road, thereby blocking the whole route and creating risks for everybody and damage and discomfort for many.

Service stations

SURE YOU LOCKED YOUR VEHICLE?

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators support the Road Police Service through special agreements providing economic resources and materials. Not only does this contribution allow the Road Police to ensure higher standards of road safety, but it also provides safer roads and service areas from the perspective of the public order forces. Nonetheless, you should never underestimate the possible presence of thieves and fraudsters.

When?
Every time you take a break during your journey in the service stations or large parking areas.
What?
Double check that the doors are actually locked after pushing the button on the central locking control. It is a simple gesture that can protect you from a theft.
Why?
The good rule not to leave anything in sight and always lock the car doors even for short stops might no longer be enough nowadays. Part of thefts in cars are perpetrated using sophisticated technological tools, whose existence is often unknown.
The jammer is a device intended to disturb the frequencies of remote controls within a radius of a few tens of meters. It is operated by the thief when the driver leaves the car parked and uses the central locking control to lock the doors. The signal of the jammer disturbs the remote control and the doors of the car remain open. When a car is open, a thief needs no more than 5 minutes to "wipe it clean". Unfortunately, you need over ten minutes to drink your coffee.
However, the same result can also be obtained with less technological means. A thief approaches the car pretending to be the owner of the car nearby. When the driver uses the central locking control, the thief rises a handle of the door without being seen by the owner of the car. Also in this case, the locking procedure is interrupted without the driver being aware of it. After a few minutes, the thief can act undisturbed.
As trivial as they may seem, we want to add some more tips: take valuable objects with you, do not leave anything in sight, clean the sign left on the glass by the sucker of the satellite navigator, put objects that appear to be valuable out of the view before getting to the parking area and not when you're already there, cause you could be seen by potential thieves.
Remember to report any problem to the service station attendants immediately and, if necessary, to the Police authorities. The safety of other drivers is also your safety.
