The study compares the accident risk of Norwegian and foreign registered heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) in Norway based on numbers from the period 2007-2018. Norwegian HGVs have the lowest accident risk, with 0.25 injuries per million km. HGVs from other EU15 (0.66) had over 2.5 times higher accident risk than the Norwegian, followed by Swedish HGVs (0.48), other EU28 (0.39), Polish and Baltic (0.39) and Danish HGVs. (0.35). The risk has decreased significantly during the period, for all groups. To disregard annual variations, we compare the risk for Norwegian and foreign HGVs in two six-year periods: 2007-2012 and 2013-2018. The risk of both groups is almost halved in the second six-year period. In addition, the accident risk og foreign HGVs is almost twice as high as the accident risk of Norwegian HGVs, in both periods.
