One in three Norwegians are driving their cars more often during the coronavirus pandemic due to the risk of infection on public transport, a survey shows.
In a survey conducted by YouGov for the insurance company Tryg in October, 34% of Norwegians answered that they drive a car more often than before.
“Many people prefer to drive a car now to avoid the risk of infection on public transport, which the authorities also encourage.
“But the numbers vary greatly between cities and the country,” communications consultant Torbjørn Brandeggen in Tryg noted.
In Oslo, as much as 50% are driving more now than before.
At the same time, less than 20% of people in more rural areas answered that they drive more.
In Troms and Finnmark, only 13% answered that they drive more often than before.
