During summer months, motorway traffic is extremely dense and occasionally there is congestion due to high traffic demand. We appeal to the users due to their safety and safety of other traffic participants to show a high level of responsibility while driving, because, unfortunately, in the last few days, we have witnessed several serious traffic accidents with fatalities.
Bearing high summer temperatures in mind, which on longer journeys have a major impact on driver fatigue, as one of traffic risk factors, we advise more frequent rest as well as a careful and responsible ride.
For safety purposes, we encourage drivers to accommodate their driving to the visibility conditions, traffic density, and to monitor messages on traffic info-displays about particular sections of the motorway and information on possible detours.
We appeal to our users to use the stopping (emergency) lane only in emergency situations. If stopping on the stopping lane of the motorway is inevitable, contact us immediately via SOS phone or by calling the free info phone 0800 0111, leave the vehicle and wait for assistance behind the protective guard rail or in another safe place and wear a protective vest.
We also recommend if you get information about a vehicle moving in opposite direction, on the section of the motorway you are driving on, decrease your driving speed to 40 km/h, and continue driving on the right traffic lane with increased caution without overtaking, with all four direction indicators turned on. Stop the car on the first rest area along the motorway and wait for the information on cessation of danger.
If you have spotted a car moving in the opposite direction on the motorway, you must inform the police immediately on the phone number 192 or DUZS 112. You can also report the information to the free ARZ info phone number 0800-0111.
Given that the traffic congestions contribute to an increase in traffic accidents, it is extremely important that an emergency vehicle, a police vehicle and a firefighter vehicle arrive as soon as possible to the injured. In such a case, form an emergency corridor or allow free passage to vehicles with rotating lights and sound signals. This corridor allows these vehicles to get to the traffic accident site faster and safer and thus assist accident victims as soon as possible.
In order for all motorway users to be timely informed about the traffic situation and possible extraordinary events, especially during the tourist season, all of the information is regularly published through regular reports of HAK and on the website of Autocesta Rijeka - Zagreb d.d. (ARZ).
We encourage users to switch the radio system to the traffic information system (RDS), and all additional information can be obtained on the free info phone number 0800 0111.
Autocesta Rijeka - Zagreb d.d. wishes you a safe journey and a pleasant ride.
