More expensive: traffic fines will increase sharply

More expensive: traffic fines will increase sharply

If you think it would be costly to get caught for speeding or other traffic offenses, you should prepare for tough times ahead. The Ministry of Transport and Communications is now proposing a sharp increase in the prices of simplified applications – fines – in cases of road traffic.

The proposal is now up for consultation, and it is proposed that prices be revised upwards by up to 30 percent. This means, for example, that a number of fairly common offenses will now cost close to NOK 10,000. This applies, for example, to driving against a red light, breaching the obligation to give way, driving too short a distance to the vehicle ahead, and not stopping for pedestrians at pedestrian crossings.

This applies to the illegal use of a mobile phone in a car.

up to 15100

When the new rates come into effect, possibly from the new year, the maximum fine for speeding will be over 15,000 NOK. It will be applied to driving 36-40 km/h above the speed limit on highways.

The suggested price list for speeding tickets looks like this:

– When the immediately set speed is 60km/h or less, and the speed limit is

  • up to 5 km/h 1,100 NOK
  • Up to 10 km/h 3000 NOK
  • Up to 15 km/h 5400 NOK
  • up to 20 km/h 7800 NOK
  • up to 25 km/h 12100 NOK

– When the immediately set speed is 70 km/h or higher, and the speed limit is

  • up to 5 km/h 1,100 NOK
  • Up to 10 km/h 3000 NOK
  • Up to 15 km/h 4800 NOK
  • Up to 20 km/h 6,700 NOK
  • Up to 25 km/h 9,100 NOK
  • Up to 30 km/h 12100 NOK
  • up to 35 km/h 14,500 NOK

For a short distance: 9700 NOK

A number of offenses will now cost you 9,700 NOK. This applies, for example, to driving against a red light, or a very short distance from the vehicle in front of you, or illegal overtaking in front of or at an intersection and where it obstructs visibility, at pedestrian crossings or against overtaking prohibitions.

The same price applies if you do not “be sure” that the driver in front of you has not signaled to overtake or that no one has started to overtake.

The same price applies if you do not comply with the duty to give way, do not stop at a full stop sign, do not stop in front of pedestrians in a pedestrian lane, in front of pedestrians or cyclists as they enter at the turn or when exiting a parking lot, gas station and the like.

Electronic equipment: 9700 NOK

This high price also applies to violations of the ban on the use of snowmobiles, the use of motor vehicles in terrain or on roads not open to public traffic.

A particularly noteworthy point is that the illegal use of electronic equipment in a car (section 23b of the Road Traffic Act – eg a mobile phone – will now cost NOK 9,700. This has increased sharply in recent years.

Too expensive to sneak into bus lanes

Driving a motorized vehicle, excluding a small electric vehicle, in violation of traffic lights (no entry, no traffic, no turning, no turning, mandatory direction of travel, mandatory lane, mandatory roundabout, crowded lane, public lane, common use lane, one-way driving, Pedestrian Street, now receives a price of NOK 7800. Sneaking up the bus lane will be expensive!

Driving in restricted areas or on sidewalks, bike lanes or pedestrian paths wouldn’t be cheap either – here the new price is NOK 5900.

Driving a motorcycle or moped that has been modified to run faster than approved also carries a bill of 7800 NOK.

Accident investigation

The aim of the fines rates is to have a preventive effect against dangerous behavior on the road with a high risk of accidents, as the ministry wrote in justifying the proposal. Here, the main social and economic consequences and costs of traffic violations and accidents are indicated.

– High speed is the only factor that contributes to most traffic accidents, as indicated. The ministry notes here that the Institute of Transportation Economics has calculated that lower speed levels on the road network from 2004 to 2019 resulted in 117 deaths and serious injuries in one year 2019, compared to whether the speed level remained unchanged at the 2004 level. The ministry also indicates the negative development in accident statistics so far this year.
