Roadworks: you're getting in my office

OBSERVE THE SPEED LIMITS AND SIGNS, PLEASE

WE 4 YOU
The ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators' mission entails guaranteeing safe circulation on motorways on a continuous basis, as well as further improving the quality of motorway journeys. This is why roadworks for programmed maintenance and emergency recovery are scheduled.
Roadworks are signalled in compliance with law and guarded according the best protection criteria adopted in Italy with a view to ensuring the safety of users, technicians and workers in an environment where speed is undoubtedly a critical factor. Therefore, you are asked to give your own contribution and show respect for the operators and their work. Observe speed limits and pay attention to the road signs, please: you're getting in our office!

When?
Whenever you drive through a motorway stretch under maintenance.
What?
Pay extreme attention to the presence of men at work and roadworks, observe special signing and the speed limits set. 
Why?
To safeguard human lives that could be exposed to serious dangers in case of non-compliance on your part.

Speed limits

CAN YOU MAKE IT OR DO YOU NEED A TUTOR?

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators designed high-performance safety barriers intended both to mitigate the impact of heavy-goods vehicles and be flexible enough against light vehicles, so to redirect swerving vehicles towards the carriageway. However, your own car and the motorway network are not designed to guarantee your safety when you exceed speed limits.Except for special instances, here are the speed limits set for Italian motorways:

- 130 km/h for cars (on dry roads)

- 110 km/h for cars (in the event of rainfalls)

- 100 km/h for buses, 80 km/h for trucks and articulated lorries

These are the maximum speed limits. Nonetheless, you should adjust your speed to external conditions (weather, traffic, road) and to any special restriction indicated for the stretch you drive through. Novice drivers in the first 3 years driving, have additional limits: they never can overpass 100 km/h on main motorways and 90 km/h on other roads.

When?
Whenever you drive
What?
Observe the speed limits set for traffic safety and maintain a speed suitable for the local conditions you encounter.
Why?
Not only does exceeding speed limits increase the risk of collision but, in such an event, it also increases the likelihood of serious or fatal injuries.

Protection?

SUN CREAM IS ANOTHER STORY

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). Operators also pay good attention in trying to design and implement good safety barriers and more recently also work to mitigate the impacts for bikers. Remember though that bikes are the most dangerous means of transport. Every year, 1,500 bikers loose their lives in Italy, including hundreds of excellent and prudent bikers. A relatively small portion of this appalling figure dies as a result of accidents on the motorway. Motorways are designed to be travelled at relatively high speeds and the impact with asphalt and the other elements of street furniture put the bikers who are not wearing appropriate clothing and protections even more at risk.

When?
Whenever you ride a motorbike.
What?
Wear a helmet and suitable clothing, chosen among approved items only. A bike suit will protect the pilot's body and reduce the effects of the fall, as well as increasing the aerodynamic penetration and giving a greater driving comfort. Use other complementary forms of protection in addition to the suit, i.e., boots and gloves, which in most cases are abundantly enriched by different kinds of protective elements. Always remember to fasten your helmet. There are airbag systems inserted inside coats and technical jackets designed to protect the human body in the event of an accident. This system relies on the same principle as car airbags, improved by a protection surrounding all vital parts of the human body (chest, neck, hips and the spine).
Why?
If you're not adequately protected in the event of a fall or accident, you will be exposed to a strong friction with the asphalt that causes severe abrasions. Besides, you could bang your head and other parts of your body against vehicles or other obstacles you might come across.

QUEUING IN A TUNNEL

Kill the engine to keep the air you breath healthy

WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators equipped all tunnels longer than 1,000 m with 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, a correct BEHAVIOUR of drivers results in lower pollution levels, for your own comfort.

When? When queuing in a tunnel
What? Kill the engine
Why? To keep the air you breathe healthy in an enclosed space like a tunnel, so to protect your own comfort and the other users'.
