Fines and Police | Fine rates will increase sharply. Breaking the law is much more expensive

Buying a new one can cost you just as much if you get caught using the phone while driving.


Romerikes Blad: In 2019 and 2020, 18,491 and 20,480 simplified fines were issued for using a mobile phone while driving in Norway, respectively. It appears from the figures from the tax administration.

The Ministry of Transport and Communications now wants to increase people’s compliance with the ban on mobile phone use in traffic.

On Monday, the department sent out a consultation note with proposals to increase fines – and use of a mobile phone in traffic will be punished in the same way as other serious traffic offenses.

It should reflect the risk

Unlawful use of a mobile phone in traffic currently results in a fine of 6800 NOK. An already high price to pay for an innocent phone call, but the ministry now considers it necessary to increase it even more.

– An increase in the severity of the reaction in case of violation of the ban, in the form of an increase in the rate of the fine imposed, seems to be particularly relevant. In the ministry’s view, a fine of 7,450 NOK would better reflect the seriousness of the violation, compared to other traffic violations, the Ministry of Transport and Communications wrote in Consultation note.

Thus, it is proposed to raise the fine rate for illegal mobile phone use while driving to NOK 7,450.

The head of emergency police, Rohr S. ​​Larsen, says fine rates generally increase on January 1 each year, but the police themselves, before the start of 2021, recommended tougher penalties for mobile phone use.

– Prior to the annual increase on January 1 of this year, the police recommended an increase in prices precisely because we see that many people are using their cell phones incorrectly. There are an incredible number of people using their cell phones in traffic, he tells RB.

Larsen does not have specific figures for the fines in Rumricki, but he says that police, on a Norwegian basis, so far this year have not disclosed more violations with a mobile phone than they did in the previous year.

“Whether the fact that it hasn’t increased is due to higher fines is too early to say yet, but I think when you have tougher penalties, it also affects motorists’ behavior,” he says.

It can be expensive
