Several cars went off the road on Saturday night despite the strong warnings from the police about the slippery roads. Sunday there will be even worse.
Meteorological department has issued cautions warning of difficult driving conditions in Agder, Telemark, Buskerud, Vestfold, Oslo and Akershus Sunday. In several places, there are expected heavy snowfall.
– It is soap slippery. It has started to snow, and as the cars are pressing the snow down the road becomes completely polished and smooth. In addition, it is so cold that it is no use to salt. We expect that it is going to last, says operations leader Kjartan Waage in the Inland Police district to the news agency NTB night to Sunday.
The message is about the same from operations leader Kjetil Indahl in the South East Police. It is polished on the roads to speak. E18 and numerous side roads are very slippery. We have received some reports of cars that have run off the road and run into each other when they should slow down at intersections, he said.
