The present work establishes, in the first place, the reasons that base for the authors the necessity to offer to the street norms a significant content, with the purpose of surpassing the fallacies of interpretation by ambiguity, generality and imprecision. It is emphasized that such errors occur by making the reading of a rule outside of its own context or without applying previous knowledge, and that such deficiencies do not constitute a defect of the law (which has no educational but normative concern).
Then the analysis of some expressions that are common to most road laws is carried out: circulate with care and prevention, control or control of the road, traffic risks, precautionary speed, priority of passage; and in each case a common meaning is proposed to all users in any way. At the end a meaning of the expression road experience is postulated.
The article concludes with an invitation addressed in particular to professionals in the field of accidentology, to discuss the meanings exposed and others equally implicit in any rule, in order to arrive at a global consensus that facilitates the correct understanding and application (by conviction and not by imposition) of the legal imperative.
