According to recent figures from the Norwegian Transport Insurance Association, more and more insured cars are driving on Norwegian roads.
“Through 2021 and into 2022, the number of uninsured cars has stabilized at less than 0.7%. From 2018 until 2021, there has been a very gratifying decrease in the number of uninsured cars,” director Roger Stenseth of the Traffic Insurance Association told the newspaper Nationen.
There are around 4.3 million registered vehicles in Norway. Of those, 28,000 lack insurance, according to Stenseth.
Nearly half of these uninsured vehicles are passenger cars. Around 17% are mopeds, 15% are vans, while tractors account for close to 9%.
Stenseth reminds people that it is required by law to get insurance for vehicles and that it can be very expensive if one ends up in an accident and the car is not insured.
As the owner of the vehicle, you are personally responsible for the compensation amount. Unfortunately, far too many people have gone into debt because they didn’t have insurance in place, he noted.
