Could you get some details? Gust speed at the moment of overturning would be very interesting. I suppose that happened in Vipava valley

What details? There were numerous, mostly by drivers who don't obey ban.

And lateral accidents don't happen so often - actually I never heard of them - if they are, they are mostly minor crashes as when roads are full of snow.

I looked at the moment DARS web site and noticed they changed parameters for closing MW for cars (from 151km/h to 144km/h). I think that is safer solution.
As for lateral accidents, that is your opinion. I think that accidents on the viaducts & bridges could be very dangerous. and from that point of view it is necessary to have more safety reserve.

But if the problem is lateral accident, wouldn't be enough to restrict traffic to the right lane in case of strong wind? It could move your car to the hard shoulder or to the left one, but no cars would be coming there.

less dangerous than on snowy road. Do we close roads in case of snow? No.

Yes, in Croatia that is one of the possible procedures when there are combination of adverse weather conditions, Bora & snow. On MW A6 they direct 3 traffic flows to the one left lane which is windshelded.

Which Italian cities and villages are signposted in Slovenia? I recall Trieste/Trst, Gorizia/Gorica and even Udine/Videm (on H4).

Rabuiese on H5 (but it says only Rabujez), Bazovica/Basovizza, Monrupino (but says only Repentabor), Trbiž/Tarvisio, perhaps some more villages.

Yes, but I don't think he drives that fast, trucks are quite fast as well.

These two pictures show inconsistency as for distance signalization in Slo. Question is, is this new or old one?

I've always wanted to go there, it seems like an interesting valley.
