I'm a bit disappointed.

I thought that it would have been a 2+2 lanes stretch

Other say: "If you're tired, stop in a rest area" or "Make a stop every two hours". Safety advice or advertisement for Autogrill?

I think they should shut down VMSs when there's nothing relevant to warn about (accidents, traffic jams, road works, bad weather), instead of filling them with non-essential info that distracts drivers and makes them ignoring VMSs even when they're useful.

People know distracted driving is dangerous, but think it'll happen to others and they are in control while using a smartphone.

I don't think this will really change unless enforcement goes up considerably. But Europe has moved away from highway patrols in favor of speed cameras. The chances of getting caught is very small. You read about people getting caught having driven 20 or 30 years without a driver's license.

Chances of getting caught while using mobile phones are very slim compared to other violations such speeding, DUI and parking violations.

Considering also the fact that Italy's approving a law for rendering "driving without a driver's license" an administrative offence instead of a felony.

That's a common problem in Sicily. When I went there, I travelled the whole A18 and parts of A19 and A20 and I noticed that in many parts the hard shoulder was unusable because obstructed by wild weeds and also plants in the median were overgrown and unmantained.
I even spotted a fire in the median of A18, likely caused by a driver who threw a lit cigarette butt out of his window.

I'm joking of cors Sicily have very good otroway too and a large expressway network. But in some area of the island they should have a better maintenance. that's my opinion.

Yes, in fact the problem of Sicilian roads is mostly quality-related, not quantity-related, although a motorway along the southern coast and a proper bypass of Palermo would help.

They had a couple of bridge collapses / subsidences as well. Maintenance seems to be a problem in Sicily.
