WHEN YOU ENTER...BE RESPECTFUL...

AND COMPLIANT WITH PRIORITY RULES

WE 4 YOU
Since the design phase, ASTM-SIAS operators guaranteed an appropriate marking at motorway crossings, with ac- celeration and deceleration lanes. Variable message signs placed at entry points and along the motorway provide drivers with real time information on traffic and safety problems which might have emerged.As you enter a motorway, remember to be extremely ca- reful, comply with speed limits, drive along the whole ac- celeration lane before passing on another one, in order to have the same speed as the other vehicles and, above all, give priority to traffic approaching on your left. Art. 154 of the Road Code states that, when you join traffic flows, you must be careful not to cause danger or hinder, taking into account the position, speed and distance of the ap- proaching vehicles.

When?
Whenever you enter a motorway from a crossing, parking area or service station.
What?
Drive along the whole acceleration lane to reach the speed of other vehicles, use light indicators to show the other drivers your manoeuvre and watch out for approaching vehicles, always giving them priority.
Why?
The entering manoeuvre should be as careful as pos- sible because the risk in motorways is usually linked with speed difference among vehicles. Then, it is obvious that these big differences are particularly huge when joining the traffic flow from outside. Namely, watch out for bikes! Because they have a smaller front section, they are more difficult to identify and might give the wrong distance im- pression. Furthermore, you need to be particularly careful when there are bikers along the road because they have no cabin protection around them. This means that forcing bikers to jam on the brakes, maybe with slippery roadbed, may make them fall with terrible consequences for the bi- kers themselves, any passenger and even for the passen- gers of other approaching vehicles.

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.

RUFFLED HAIR OR BROKEN HEAD?

DON’T RUN SUCH RISK: BECOME A BLUE HELMET FOR ROAD SAFETY

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators have undertaken to ensure a good level of grip and evenness of the motorway pavement and aim at pro- viding suitable road beds for bikers. On their side, manufacturers have undertaken to design and homologate their helmets according to the criteria set by UN and EU institutions. Although you might be one of those who (negligently) think that helmets just leave your hair ruffled, you should be aware that fatalities involving bikes are well beyond 1,000 per year considering Italy only. Furthermore, 40% of the conse- quences of such fatalities could be avoided just by wearing a helmet correctly. Yes, you read well! We are talking about almost half of deaths. Now that you know that, you can understand why those who wear a helmet are leaders, not geeks. Respect yourself! Look at yourself in the mirror and swear you’ll wear and duly fasten your helmet before starting the engine.

When?
Every time you ride on a bike or a motor-scooter.
What?
Before starting the engine, check that your helmet is duly fas- tened. If not, it can unfasten and be dropped even before you fall off, crash or slip. If you want to be sure that your helmet is a high quality product, specially designed to protect bikers’ heads in case of road accidents, check for the “R22” label. This means it has www.trip2life.com been tested and homologated according to the stricter criteria worldwide (i.e. UN Regulation 22).
Why?
In case of fall, the damages to your head are due to the impact of your head onto a rigid surface following to an abrupt stop (in addition to excoriations from friction against rough surfaces as asphalt roads). To prevent this kind of damage, you need to mitigate abrupt stops and make them somehow smoother. Remember that, not only do the helmets homolo- gated according to the regulations issued by the European Office for the United Nations save your life, but they also spare you from being fined, having your bike seized, and even 5 points subtracted from your driving license if an over 18 driver wears no helmet or carries a under 18 passenger wearing no helmet. Moreover, remember that bikers making risky ma- noeuvres (e.g., riding in an incorrect position, riding with only one hand on the handlebars without reason, lifting up their front wheel, towing or being towed by another vehicle), as well as bikers carrying a passenger on a vehicle which has no homologation for such purpose are punished by law. Complying with rules means undertaking a battle for civilization and be- coming a leader - a “blue helmet” for road safety.

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.
