It's dangerous, but apparently they are rebuilding them.

Actually I am sorry Sardinia is not so well known, it has by far the best sea of the mediterranean sea and some of the most spectacular sceneries of Italy

Of course it's our fault...Sardinia is a very popular destination for italians but untill recently not for foreigners, there has been a boom of low cost lately thought. I suggest everyone to pay a visit, it is well worth it.

Not by 2012?

Anyway, does anyone know, if there's any sign in Italy with an 'F' oval (France)? I've seen ovals of all other neighboring countries (except 'V' (Vatican)), but I haven't noticed any 'F'. They should really put it on the A5, you can't sign just "Monte Bianco".

I didn't see ovals on the Riviera motorway either - only Ventimiglia and (sometimes also) Nizza .

Mmmmh... unfortunately I think there are other ones, over all in old stretches

For istance intersection A-10/A-26 from Savona to Milan direction the junction is pratically a left exit with a left entrance in A-26

Also in A8/A9 intersection there is a left entrance coming from Como and directed to Milan: fortunately here they're going to change it in next future

I assume scooters are not rare because Police control is rare

Nice report though

Recently in Nice they added to all road signs to French word even the 'translation' in old 'Nissardo', the dialect of Nice: kinda a mix of Italian and French (even in France localism seems to be 'trendy')

Yes, even some streets in the old town have bilingual plates: Rue Centrale / Carriera Centrala. It's some sort of dialect of Occitan I think, but good luck trying to find anyone still speaking it there.

those are not real "left exits" but more mergers of highways...a real exit on the left (to exit the highway alltogether) was the Linate one but I do not know anyone else.

At least on the A8-A9 'confluence' you don't have to move right like on those Ukrainian dual carriageways (of course, if you're slow, you'll have to sooner or later, but not technically necessary).

yes, very rare. although i saw few of them, even on expressways, and it seemed they've been punishing somebody.
btw, last year i saw scooter at A24 in tunnels zone (just after quite long San Rocco, if i remember well)

If a scooter is at least 150 cc it's perfectly legal to ride it on Auststade.

The one you pctured is oviously a 50cc, they have different plates I was not aware of any limitations on superstrade. Bycicles and tractors on Tangenziali are ddrlfom seen, well sometimes.

Maybe because it's a RA, i.e. going nowhere but to an Autostrada where such vehicles would be banned. Not sure, though, I take your word.

There's not many RA around here nr lonng haul expressways. Just A and Tangenziali.
