TAKE OFF YOUR SUNGLASSES!

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorways have always been equipped with tunnel-specific lighting systems.

Several Italian laws and a European directive have recently confirmed such choice as being more than suitable.

The lighting systems in our tunnels are specifically sized to ensure safety and comfort in order to balance the effect of transition from open air to the tunnel.
However, an attentive and correct drive is the determinative factor for safety margins.
And don't forget to avoid overspeeding! The tunnel lighting system has been sized to fit the physiological characteristics of human eyes and their capacity to adapt to darkness gradually and considering the speed allowed on the motorway. ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators design tunnel lighting systems to guarantee the highest safety standards at motorway speed limits. So, don't ever exceed them, or you'll put your own safety and the other users' at risk.

When? When approaching tunnel portals 
What? Take off your sunglasses and observe speed limits. 
Why? Sunglasses might keep obstacles hidden. Road and facility features are designed for specific speed limits. When you exceed such limits, you're not driving safe anymore.

Any trouble? Can you make it a little farther?

STOP AT A REST AREA

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. In the event of a mechanical breakdown, try to drive your vehicle as far as the closest safe rest area if you can. If you had a puncture and have to change a tyre, you'd rather risk the rim than your life, wouldn't you?

When? Inside a tunnel or on a motorway carriageway, if you realize your vehicle is on the verge of a breakdown.
What? If possible, get out of the tunnel. If it's too long, stop in a parking bay and push the red button on the emergency call box. The same is to be done even outside a tunnel. Never stop on the carriageway! 
Why? A vehicle stationing on a motorway carriageway is in danger of being bumped into by other vehicles travelling at high speed.

Exodus: we are here to serve you at best

MAKE SMART CHOICES AND TRAVEL IN FULL SAFETY

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have undertaken to maintain the facility and improve safety standards, to build it in a way suitable to ensure safe and comfortable journeys through the introduction of rest and parking areas and emergency bays, and to offer information services in accordance with the highest European standards thanks to the participation of Italian authorities and 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. However, no road will ever be large enough and ensure smooth traffic flows if the whole population decides to leave for a journey at the same time. Make smart choices intelligent choices so as not to worsen traffic conditions.

When?
In mass holidays and mass departure times; on a return journey from weekends or holidays.
What?
Plan your departure taking the traffic forecasts into account (if possible delay or anticipates your departure by avoiding peak times) and keep informed along the journey. Check the vehicle properly, before the journey. Fix the cargo you are carrying, both on the luggage carrier and inside the vehicle and the passenger compartment. In the event of a collision, a loose cargo could turn into a real "crazy bullet". Avoid any objects that might impair the driver's rear view. Don't leave for a journey in the hottest hours of the day and aerate your adequately before getting into it. Turn the air conditioning on and set a suitable internal temperature, about 5 degrees below the outside temperature. Don't forget to bring sufficient water with you in the event of unforeseen queues. Fasten your seat belts, both in the front and in the back seats, and secure infant car seats. Before placing the children on the seat, verify it is not overheated. Do not leave people in the car parked in the sun even for short periods. Comply with speed limits and safety distances. Travel after having rested and stop as you first feel tired in order to "stretch your legs a bit". Stop only in the service stations and parking areas. During the stops, avoid eating too quickly and above all do not drink alcohol, even in the quantity admitted by law. In the event of an accident, use the SOS/emergency call boxes, dial 113 for the Police, 118 for an ambulance, and 115 for fire brigades. Be informed when you travel: tune on the dedicated radio frequencies indicated along the motorways or call the Traffic Call Center suggested by the motorway operator that you are driving on (see www.aiscat.it or www.autostradafacendo.it). Stop on the emergency lane or in a parking area only in the event of a breakdown or if not feeling well. Dial 113 from your mobile phone to ask for help. Always use the freest lane on the right-hand side.
Why?
"Smart departures" do not only mean leaving at 5 in the morning or late in the evening to be able to travel smoothly. A smart attitude should begin home, even before you start your engine, and end when you got to your destination safely. You'd rather be farsighted and give a look before leaving than waste hours, even days, travelling or risk serious accidents.

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.
