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..

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.

Orange plate? Hazardous materials!

WARNING! DOUBLE YOUR SAFETY DISTANCE

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. Moreover, we all need fuel, therapeutic oxygen, and many other products whose transport is dangerous because of their intrinsic nature.
This type of transport requires special vehicles, driven by staff with specific qualifications.
The local Health Services and the Italian Fire Brigades are ready to intervene and handle emergencies daily. However, full prevention on the roads avoids dangers to users' safety.
When you drive you must always be cautious, but even more when the risk is very high. FOR GREATER CAUTION, DOUBLE YOUR SAFETY DISTANCE WHEN THE VEHICLE BEFORE YOU BEARS AN ORANGE PLATE ON THE BACK. IF YOU HAVE TO OVERTAKE IT, DO IT WITH THE UTMOST CAUTION.

When?
When you come across a vehicle showing orange panels in addition to the number plate. In that case, you must be aware that the vehicle is transporting hazardous material as defined by the following table:

- Class 1 Explosives

- Class 2 Compressed, liquefied or dissolved gases

- Class 3 Flammable liquids

- Class 4.1 Flammable solids

- Class 4.2 Substances subject to spontaneous combustion

- Class 4.3 Substances which, in contact with water, release flammable gases

- Class 5.1 Oxidizing substances

- Class 5.2 Organic peroxides

- Class 6.1 Toxic substances

- Class 6.2 Repugnant substances that can cause infections

- Class 7 Radioactive material

- Class 8 Corrosive substances

- Class 9 Otherwise dangerous materials


What do I have to do?
Keep it at a distance and double your caution measures.

Why?
I Vehicles bearing an orange plate on the back in addition to number plates usually transport dangerous goods. When you see this type of vehicle you must be particularly careful, because an accident involving it may have very severe consequences on people, facilities and environment. The so-called "hazard plates" are used to indicate the transportation of dangerous goods. They are divided in two parts including:
* the "hazard identification number" or Kemler number above the median line
* the "substance identification number or UN number" below the median line, to allow you to identify the substance exactly.

BENZOLE

The first digit of the hazard identification number indicates the main danger as follows:

2Gas
3Flammable liquid
4Flammable solid
5Oxidizing substance or organic peroxide
6Toxic substance
8Corrosive


The second and the third digits indicate the secondary dangers:

0No meaning
1Explosion
2Release of gas
3Flammable
5Oxidizing properties
6Toxicity
8Corrosivity
9Risk of spontaneous reaction due to decomposition or polymerization


When the first two digits are the same, it indicates an increased main danger.
Example:

66Extremely toxic substance
33Extremely flammable liquid (flash-point below 21°C)
88Extremely corrosive substance
22Refrigerated gas
42Solid which, in contact with water, can release gas
XSubstance which reacts violently with water
X333Spontaneously flammable liquid, which reacts dangerously with water
X423Flammable solid which reacts dangerously with water and can develop flammable gases


An "X" before the hazard identification number reminds you that the substance is highly reactive to water (holeum, calcium carbide, etc).

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.
