Although a number of border crossings have been legally closed due to the corona situation since January 2, at least 5,173 vehicles have passed through them, according to figures newspaper VG has received from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.
While there are exceptions, for most people, it is forbidden and also punishable by fines to pass through closed border crossings – even if they are not physically closed.
VG has obtained figures from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration for twelve closed crossings.
The data shows that 5,173 vehicles have been registered driving into the country via these crossings from January 2 to January 13.
Out of the twelve closed border crossings, two are in Nordland, two in Trøndelag, four in the Inland, three in Viken, and one in Troms and Finnmark.
