In the event of fog / What not to do

Autostrade per l’Italia and its subsidiaries are carrying out a major investment plan to develop and modernize the highway network.

What not to do

  • Keep your distance from the car in front, even if the driver appears to be driving safely. This behaviour is not as safe as you think: the distance available to you in the event of braking or slowdown may be insufficient for the speed you are both driving at.
  • Avoid overtaking where possible and if you are forced to overtake, indicate immediately and then return to your original lane.
  • Don't be distracted by what is happening on the opposite lane: you may have insufficient time to see what is happening right in front you.
  • Do not drive on top of lane edge lines.
  • Avoid stopping on the hard shoulder; if forced to stop, switch on the hazard lights and side lights. Motorists should stay in the specially equipped area or in lay-bys in order to avoid the danger of being hit by vehicles in transit.
