Italians may have a reputation for erratic driving, but apparently its not all their fault: one third of Italys road accidents is due to infrastructure problems including badly marked lanes, obstacles in the road, unclear signposting, poor lighting and inadequate maintenance, according to a report published by Automobile Club dItalia and Istat, Italys statistics institute. The finding is backed by a 3,000-km test drive carried out by the consumer rights association Altroconsumo, which led it to file complaints in courts throughout Italy. Blacklisted roads near Rome include the state road SS148 to Latina (no emergency lane), the capitals ring road or GRA (inadequate or dangerous guard rails) and the A1 motorway to Naples (leftover "temporary" lane markings from construction work).
