Right-click on the picture in Picasa and copy the URL, then paste it here. It should work that way.

I continued my way because anyway I was exiting at Schonberg thinking that it will be fine, but I stopped before that in a parking lot to see what's the problem. After giving the engine some high revs (5 - 6000 rot/min on a 1.5 diesel engine) in the parking lot it was good again. Imagine that I couldn't go faster than 60 km/h on that climb before the so-called engine repair.

Unfortunately the section Brennero - Vipiteno is not free. Try to exit in Vipiteno / Sterzing, 100 m after the big toll barrier, you'll pay € 1.20

Yes but there are 2 more exits between Vipiteno and the pass... I guess exiting there is free.

Yes, if you travel southwards these two exit are free, but northward in Vipiteno you'll pay the entire section Vipiteno - Brennero

I found a good explanation on wikipedia:
"it's a traffic device that enables vehicles that are having braking problems to safely stop"
The full article here.

edit:
Falusi, we had the same idea, but I arrived too late

Exceptionally I was faster

These things are quite good, the only ramp like this I saw on a czechian main road, more of these should exist in montainous areas
