A total of eight people lost their lives in traffic in Norway in the first month of the year. 

Just as many died on Norwegian roads in January of last year, figures from Trygg Trafikk show.

Out of those who died in January, the majority were drivers. Furthermore, drivers are the most represented group in accident statistics.

“Drivers die most often in traffic, but the number of deaths has significantly declined in recent years. Last year, 45 drivers died, which is the lowest number we have had in over twenty years,” communications manager Ingrid Trømborg in Trygg Trafikk noted.

Two people lost their lives in Vestfold and Telemark and in Troms and Finnmark. 

One man died in Viken, one woman in Møre og Romsdal, one man in Agder, and one man in Trøndelag.
