Only four people died in traffic in September, compared to ten in the same month last year.

Norway has never registered such low death rates in September traffic as in 2020.

Last year, 75 people died in the first nine months of the year, and this year the number is 71.

That is a total of historically low death rates, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration’s preliminary figures show.

Fewer fatal accidents

Three men and an elderly woman lost their lives in traffic in September. The accidents occurred in Troms and Finnmark, Møre og Romsdal, Innlandet, and Viken. Two were on a bicycle and two were in a car.

Rogaland, Vestland, Nordland, Oslo, Vestfold and Telemark, Trøndelag and Agder registered no traffic fatalities in September.

In September, for the first time since the harsh summer months, during which half of the deaths in traffic were related to motorcycle accidents, no one died in motorcycle accidents.
