As far as i understand, the guy talks about the problems with large trucks in the area, and the importance of the transport company, and later that rolf thing talking about his transport company. Later some guy says that there is 10 buses and 34 trucks on the road - a day! And later Einar talks about problems with passing other trucks on that road.

No, they're SOS lots, because Italian shoulders are not wide enough to accomodate trucks, and they're usually not safe for cars too, because Italian motorway usually have guardrails or barriers right next to the small shoulder. But if there's no alternative for those truckers, I can understand they have to use them.

The alternative is to keep on driving and the chances of getting caught for exceeding hours of service is quite big, because of the digital tagographs they have these days. Truckers can be fined up to 4 weeks after the violation 2000 kilometers away.

Well, one of the most interesting experinces I had interacting with trucks in Italy was on A3 highway, connectin Salerno to Reggio Calabria. It's a 2x2 highway than runs mostly through very mountainous terrain in Southern Italy, and they are upgrading it from old standards (3,4m lanes, no hard shoulder, 80km/h limit in most places) to modern Italian standards. Therefore, they're not only widening the carriageway, but reconstructing the highway, shortening some segments, cutting new tunnels to avoid sharp curves etc.

Near Villa San Giovanni (where you can take the ferry to Sicily) there's a long 40km segment which is being modernized, but is almost only tunnels and bridges one after another. Therefore, the road there is 2X1 until they modernize the opposite carriageway, then they'll transfer all trafic there, modernize the other carriageway and finally clear everything up.

I'll never forget: there's a 60km/h limit in the WHOLE 42km strecht, which has absolutely NO PASSING POINT. I'm very afraid of speed traps (Autovelox), so I play it safe and abide to them. Point is: I've not driven there for a while, so I made an "extra acceleration maneuver" to pass a truck in a hill, only to find myself holding the whole lane back into 42km (most of it was in the descent lane, from 1.300m to almost sea level).

So, you imagine me, at dusk, holding an Italian big lorry for 42km! The driver cursed me, honked, flashlighted me in the tunnels etc. There was no way I could "yield" to him: one tight lane, no shoulder, temporary median placed on. It was very frightening, I had just moved back to Italyu, and it was my first long-distance trip alone in Italy after I'd got my license. There was no visible traffic in front of me, but tons of advises of Autovelox. After 10 or 15km, I just turn the radio volume higher and tried to ignore the honking from following drivers, but singal would go off inside the tunnels.

I was kind of relieved when my exit came... and I could strecht my legs while crossing to Sicily.
