CAN TEXTING SAVE YOUR LIFE?

IT CAN...IF YOU DON'T DO IT!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators collaborate with telephone operators and provide coverage for cell phones along their own road network. It is quite a useful service in case of emergency, and a convenience for passengers. Nonetheless, not only is it forbidden to use your mobile phone while driving, but it also in- creases the risk of accidents by 5 times. A telephone call may divert your attention from driving, but texting is 20 times more dangerous. It's not distraction, it's an irresponsible act! While a downturn is observed in the trend of some other risky behaviours, for this one an increase is recorded, which is directly proportional to the informatic equipment available to the drivers. Many na- tional governments are taking severe measures to oppose such bad behaviour. When you're driving, you should drive only and nothing more!

When?
All the time, when you're driving.
What?
Always focus your attention on the road, keep your hands on the steering wheel and never use electronic com- munication devices.
Why?
Recent surveys (by IPSOS) highlight that 76% of Italian people identify the human factor, namely distraction and non compliance with the Road Code, as the main cause of road accidents. Among the most dangerous activities: talk- ing on the cell phone (50%), dialling a telephone number (45%), and texting (76%). The youngest drivers (between 18 and 24) are the ones who text the most when driving. Some US researches show that texting while driving increase the risk of accident by 23 times. As a matter of fact, you turn away from the road for 4,6 seconds when texting, which means (at 50 km/h) driving the length of a football field without looking. Since March 2012, the Italian law introduced stricter pro- visions on the use of cell phones while driving, thus recog- nizing the risk inherent in such action. Therefore, if you have to send a text message, pull in a service station and park safely. The motorway system is safe as long as the drivers are careful. Any distraction or carelessness may have a great cost for yourself and for the others - because road doesn’t spare the inattentive people.

What if I stop here?

NO WAY!!! IN REST AREAS & SERVICE STATIONS ONLY, PLEASE.

WE 4 YOU
Stationing on motorway carriageways is very dangerous, and it should be done only in case of extreme emergency. The risk is due to the speed gap between your vehicle (which is stationary) and the vehicles travelling at high speed. This is why motorways include rest areas, parking and emergency bays. Although the Italian territory is rich in mountains and deep valleys, where this kind of safety feature can be barely provided, we dedicate ourselves and our investments in keeping you safe. In return, you are asked to make use of all the means you are offered. Stop only when you are not likely to endager yourself and the other users.

When?
Whenever you drive on a motorway.
What?
Do not risk. Never stop on zebra-crossed areas, cross-connections or in any space other than those explicitely intended as rest areas.
Why?
Motorway operators and designers have attentively analysed the facility. If a space is not indicated as a rest area that means manoeuvring or stationing there poses objective risks. Do not put your own life and others' at risk this way. Get to the next rest area.

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.

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).
