High-risk groups are defined as younger and older car drivers, drivers of motorcycles, foreign car drivers from non-western countries, and drivers influenced by drugs or alcohol (DUI-drivers). Exposure data are collected through surveys and roadside counts. Risk figures are calculated by use of the official road accident statistics from Statistics Norway. Results show that exposure and risk among car drivers are similar to what has been found in previous studies. For motorcyclists our results show significantly lower exposure and higher risk figures than in previous studies. Young riders below 18 years riding on light motorcycles are at especially high risk in road traffic. Car drivers with a non-western origin are more at risk than Norwegian drivers. DUI drivers are on average 55 times more at risk of a fatal accident than ordinary car drivers.
