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.
