not only at A4. you remember my summer route and i saw them a lot at those motorways, which actually are not that important (A24 for instance). and i think that maybe they are not at each portal, but it's better not to be surpriced

As an European truck driver you get the oppurtunity to see something, yes

Is there a tolerance limit like 20km over the speed limit before they fine you?

There is 5% tolerance applied on the speed registered.

The best thing you can do in Italy when you encounter a long traffic jam is exit the highway and drive through the beautiful countryside

Of course, those are by far not extreme cases.

Per l'art. 1, d.m. 29 ottobre 1997, nell'impiego di apparecchi automatici per gli accertamenti della velocitā deve essere applicata una riduzione pari al 5%, con un minimo di 5 km/h. Nella riduzione č compresa anche la tolleranza strumentale.

Fonte.


@ Verso: fortunately it's not always like that, but I have to confess that sometimes there are problems with "over information".

So 5% with a minimum of 5 km/h. That's more than the Netherlands (3km minimum). 70% of the Dutch speed fines are for less than 10 km/h too fast.

what is with 150 km/h speed limit? i didn't see a single sign of it (but in Italy they don't put speed limit signs after exits, so i actually didn't see 130 neither). is that limit at all 3+3 motorways? can it be seen somewhere?

Seems like some kind of hoax to me. I've never seen any proof of the 150 limit.

150 km/h speed limit was a proposal before Prodi's Government: it never became law, and no-one nowadays seems to propose it again

Max speed limits remain 130 km/h

Nice European streetview I've seen so far is of a far higher quality than American streetview.

Somehow, Italian Autostrada's and expressways seems a bit claustrofobic to me... Lack of full-size shoulders, many guardrails close to the driving lanes etc. Or maybe I'm just too used to other European motorways. After all, I have never driven in Italy myself (but that's gonna change next year!)
