The number of traffic injuries has increased by 4,000 from last year, according to calculations. 

Since many used their car to go on holiday in Norway this year, these are good numbers, according to insurance companies.

“Despite the fact that most people have vacationed in Norway this year, it is positive that the numbers have not increased more,” communications manager Bjarne Rysstad in Gjensidige noted in a press release.

The company expected a larger increase in traffic injuries.

More compensations

With regard to compensations after traffic accidents, they have increased by 9% in the third quarter compared with the corresponding period last year. 

Much of this is due to the fact that most newer cars have advanced electronics and expensive individual parts.

Rysstad also pointed out that the low krone exchange rate affected the costs of car repairs.
