Question #13
Head of Motorway Operations Centre, Udine

Instead of installing more speed cameras, wouldn’t it have been a better idea to increase the number of patrols?

Worksite conditions and our efforts to keep the traffic flowing smoothly during this great feat of engineering have naturally forced us to increase our number of speed checks.
The section of the Autovie Venete is policed by 17 patrols a day on average and three concentrate on the traffic in the works area.
I realise they are not very visible; this is a characteristic of the motorway but our patrols are always equipped with bright lights so they can be seen and convey a feeling of safety.
