Slowing down traffic the Italian way.

The main highway around Perugia has one very dangerous bend. Almost daily you could find new pieces of debris from more or less spectacular accidents, from scratched cars to huge trucks tipped over and spilling their contents on the road.

Nothing they did to the road reduced speeds and helped to prevent these accidents, until now.

The magic solution is speed cameras…

When you approach the bend all cars in front of you hit the brakes and enter the bend at normal speeds. Of course after the bend it is foot down again for some. However, overall the notorious bend has become a much more pleasant place. You can find the bend and speed cameras near Collestrada.
