    You can't drive to Istanbul speedly because there are a lot of rough roads.

    You can't drive to Istanbul fastly because there are a lot of rough roads.

    How can I the sentence to become meaningful?

    Re: Speedly or fastly

    They don't work. How about this:

    You can't drive to Istanbul fast/quickly because a lot of the roads are rough.

    Re: Speedly or fastly

    Neither "speedly" nor "fastly" is an English word. "Speedi​ly" exists.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Speedly or fastly

    Well, "fastly" seems to exist in some dictionaries here:

    I wouldn't use it, though.

    Note my changes to your post above. I'm sure in a previous thread, I gave you the rules of written English. They included starting every sentence with a capital letter, capitalising the word "I" every time you write it, capitalising proper nouns and ending every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark. You did not follow any of those rules in this post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'll just add that I am happy to help people who learn from what we have told them. If members ignore what we have told them, then I simply ignore their questions.

    I think it is different- it is from fast meaning secure, and we don't it is as an adverb for fast (= quick). And I am not sure that we still use it for that- it may be archaic.
