There were more cars on the roads in Norway this summer. At the same time, about 5,000 fewer speeding fines were handed out compared to the summer of 2020.

In June and July, 20,833 fines were handed out to people who drove too fast. That is 4,778 fewer fines compared to the same period last year, P4 writes.

“It was a record year in 2020, so the numbers for this year are still quite high,” the head of the Central Mobile Police Service, Steven Hasseldal, noted.

He believes the decline in the number of speeding offenses is due to the fact that there was more traffic on the roads this year.

“That leads to queues. Especially in the south and west of Norway, there has been a lot of traffic this year,” Hasseldal explained.
