There is sometimes a speed limit of 50 km/h on Italian expressways.

Sometimes the problem is police itself. They are usually measuring speed on motorway exits where 95 % drivers are speeding according to signage, but If I call them to measure 40 km/h on the road beside grammar school they magically dissapear.

Yes, true. Remember also that it's dangerous to slow down directly from 130 to 40 in a short time. Many exit ramps are perfectly safe at 60-70 km\h.

Bus driver in southern Italy talks at the mobile phone (without hand-free device) while driving on a very curvy road.

Yes, it's an insurance matter though, not a police matter ?

People who are already having to pay up are now being double-punished, as if a higher insurance premium isn't bad enough!
I haven't heard of something like that over here in the NL, you rear end someone, you fill in an insurance form or the drivers handle the business themselves (outside insurance) and you resume your way, with or without the police. The only thing the police usually does if they come is a breathalyser test for alcohol.


By the way, can someone point me to the video of I believe the Polish A2 where the automated camera's pick up on stopping on the motorway, wrong direction, etc... I believe I saw it on this forum but can't find it and went through the whole thread.

That is not very fair. My uncle has had an accident as follows: He was waiting in his car in turning lane with red light ahead and suddenly, the driver in front of him decided to change lane and continue in regular one with green light ahead, so he shifted reverse gear, accelerate and crashed my uncle's car from front. Uncle insisted on calling the police and he had to acquire a witness as well. Police accused the front driver.

I'm not sure about the Italian law, but in Spain the driver who is reversing is always guilty. Guess it works the same way in Italy.

What's the difference? If you're wrong for one, you're wrong for the other too.

This is different from what I said. I said that if you crash from behind a car that's in front of your, you're always wrong, and that's fair (because you have to be at safety distance). You mentioned reverse gear of the other party and your uncl being still: this is not part of the equation.

I also doubt that filming when driving a motorcicle is formally legal...

One of the comments of the video:

Quote:
Che schifooo rompono tanto i coglioni sulla velocita e poi permettono il transito di macchine cosi cariche che sono molto piu pericolose!Un applauso alla polizia stradale e soprattutto a autostrade per l'italia!!!!Andate a fanculo voi i tutor e tutti i limiti del cazzo!Pensate alle cose piu gravi che multare gente che con 200cv è costretta a andare a 130km!I verii pericoli sono quelli che entrano in autostrada con le 600 o le punto
He complains that police fine who goes over the speed limit instead of the driover of that overloaded car. That means..."fine the others, but not me"? The plate of that car is visible, he could signal it to the police, if he wanted...
