MUTUAL RESPECT

IS CRUCIAL TO CIVILIZATION

WE 4 YOU
There are thousands of chances for vehicles and pedestrians to cross each other’s way. According to current statistics, at least one car accident out of ten involves pedestrians. This leads to a huge social and human cost because running over a person has among the most serious consequences of all accidents - one fatality out of seven, thus a higher percentage, involves pedestrians, not to mention cases where people are not killed but permanently injured. People who have to stop on motorways for emergency reasons become pedestrians themselves. Moreover, ASTM-SIAS Motorways are scat- tered with service stations and parking areas with cafes and other services, where pedestrians are obviously found.We do our best and mark out such areas, putting markings and signs to protect pedestrian lanes. Now it’s up to you to comply with the law when you are a pedestrian, i.e., walk only on pave- ments, bays, boulevards and spaces designed for that purpose. If there are no such spaces, or they are cluttered, impracticable or in- sufficient, you must walk cautiously and attentively and be aware that although you have the right to be there, drivers may be less attentive than usual sometimes.When you are driving, remember that the others’ health and safety depend on you and your behaviour, which should never be aggres-www.trip2life.comsive. On the contrary, stop and let pedestrians walk across the road every time you can do it safely, try and protect them with your car, which is clearly more visible for other vehicles.

When?
Every time you are a pedestrian or you cross a pedestrianon your way.
What?
If you are a pedestrian, walk in the spaces provided for thatpurpose and always have a defensive attitude...when you are in your shoes - don’t take for granted that the vehicles comply strictly with the rules provided for your protection, because drivers may be tired, inattentive or even altered by forbidden substances.If you are a driver, then you are protected by the mass and plate of your vehicle, but the others are not. If you don’t want to run the risk to become a killer, then grab the wheel of your life seriously.
Why?
Pedestrians, cyclists (who cannot ride on motorways but who pay a very high toll in Italy as road casualties, just as high as all motorways), and bikers are the weakest category of road users, and this is why they deserve and need to be given special attention. When remember that you are a pedestrian every time you’re walking. When you’re driving remember that what you have in your hand is a potential weapon that kills tens of thou- sands of lives in Europe every year.

DISTRACTION IS A PLAGUE!

CHANGE YOUR MUSIC...WHEN STATIONED ONLY!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have undertaken to design, build and operate roads where it’s possible to travel safely. However, comfort doesn’t mean that you should be less attentive or keep your hands off the wheel. Inattentive driving is one of the main reasons for road accidents. Although the consequences of ab- sent minded driving are serious, we, as drivers, do not have the right perception of how much certain habits may negatively affect road safety - e.g. changing your music, handling CDs or other devices while driving. If you want to change your music, stop in a service station and take two minutes to choose your favourite soundtrack or make a phone call.

When?
When driving.
What?
You should drive and nothing more! Driving safely means there’s no room for distraction.
Why?
Changing a CD while driving is a serious source of distraction because, besides making you lose your concentration, it makes you turn away from the road and increases reaction times. Those who handle an electronic device while driving in- crease their reaction time by 50%. Remember that changing a CD while driving is the cause of 11,4% of accidents when distraction is a point in case. Even here, technology helps us with buttons on the wheel or multiple CD loaders. The motorway system is safe as long as the drivers are careful. Any distraction or carelessness may have a great cost for yourself and the others, because road does- n’t spare inattentive people.

Do you have any problem?

DON'T RUN FOOLISH RISKS: CALL US! WE'LL RUSH TO KEEP YOU SAFE

WE 4 YOU
The Road Police and ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators ensure non-stop road assistance services. Our mission is to help you and keep you safe. We're not superheroes, though - we're simply equipped with luminous signs, flashlights, fixed signs, flags and, last but not least, the skills to manage traffic as it should. Stationing in the middle of the carriageway is extremely dangerous. Call us immediately.
The sooner you call us, the faster the rescuer will come to you, which means a lower risk for yourself and for the other users.

When? In any dangerous situation and whenever you stop on the carriageway and your vehicle can't go on.
What? According to the situations, consider getting out of your car, help the other passengers to do the same, and make use of the emergency shoulders to run away. A car stationing in the middle of the lane is a danger even for its passengers. Before getting out of the vehicle, wear your reflective jacket and ask your passengers to do the same. Use the emergency call boxes to ask for the help of the Motorway Operator or Road Police. Keep a copy of "In Autostrada" - the Aiscat magazine where you can find all essential telephone numbers for travelers - in your car, or just look for the information you need on www.aiscat.it (Aiscat website) or www.autostradafacendo.it (ASTM-SIAS Group).
Why? If you don't call us promptly, you can put your own life and the others' at risk.

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.
