More than 2,600 speeding tickets were issued at Easter. According to the National Mobile Police Service, this is the highest number in the last four years (Utrykningspolitiet – UP).
“This year, we have unfortunately caught a lot of people who were driving too fast,” UP’s Steven Hasseldal told P4.
He believes that as the traffic has been more spread out over the days at Easter and with less driving in queues as a result, more people have given in to the temptation to drive faster.
Despite a total of 2,691 fines due to high speed, fewer people have lost their driver’s license. Only 158 drivers had their licenses confiscated this Easter, compared to over 300 in recent years.
