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.
