Speeding in Italy

Those very nice people over at La Polizia dello Stato, the Italian State Police, publish a list of where and when they will be carrying out checks on the speed of vehicles. You can find the most up to date .pdf list here, in Italian. Just click on the region that interests you, and be aware that the list does not include fixed speed checks such as cameras. The rule, in Italy, is that if the motorway cops stop you, you will be fined, so watch out.

Some vocabulary to help you:

  • autostrada – motorway
  • strada statale – main trunk road, may be a dual carriageway
  • strada provinciale – provincial road
  • strada regionale – similar to a’statale’, a main regional route
