new headaches for Italians. The reason is alarming

This is definitely not the right time for drivers across the country, struggling with various issues and price increases. Now there is a new setback for them related to the holidays.

In recent months, the population of Italian motorists has had to face many unforeseen events, above all the dizzying increase in petrol and diesel. The government has tried to “patch” it by reducing excise duties, but from the first days of August this controlled price will no longer be available, precisely in the peak holiday season for millions of people.

The Codacons have calculated, for example, that to drive from Trentino Alto Adige to the very tip of the trunk, the round trip cost for a car running on unleaded petrol is around 400 euros. A real puncture, which does not however stop the army of those who take advantage of the vacation days to visit cities of art and tourist resorts. It is here, however, that drivers face an additional expense.

Motorists and holidays: concern for this individual

Before hitting the road, the Highway Police obviously recommend that you carry out a general check of the vehicle, so as not to run the risk of endangering your life and that of other motorway users, for example. However, given the increasing costs that motorists have to bear, there are concerns about the “health” of the vehicles that will be on the road.

Polfer released the data retrieved from the Safe Holidays survey, and there’s certainly no comforting news. Our country’s car fleet is aging and faltering, due to two years of Covid and the ensuing economic crisis. Many Italians have not been able to buy new vehicles and the cars around are less safe and overhauled than in the past.

One example above all, during the checks carried out, the police found tire problems in 25% of cases involving cars less than 10 years old. A percentage that rises to 40% in those who have a lifespan of more than ten years. Certainly not reassuring news for all holidaymakers who will travel.
