In the last three years, the Norwegian police have seized 49% more driving licenses in the summer months of June, July, and August than in the rest of the year.

“We do not know whether it is the case that more people are actually driving faster now or whether we have become better at detecting them. But we still catch more that drive too fast, and it is worrying,” Steven Hasseldal at the National Mobile Police Service told P4.

In the last three years, an average of 686 drivers lost their driving license in each of the summer months, compared with 460 in the other months.

So far this year (January-June), the police have seized slightly fewer driving licenses than in the same period last year, but the figures are 22% higher than in 2019.
