The report presents an update of estimates of the risk of apprehension for traffic offences in Norway. In recent years, the risk of apprehension for speeding and for violating the regulations concerning hours of driving and resting in professional transport has been reduced. The risk of apprehension has increased for not wearing seat belts, drink-driving, driving under the influence of drugs or medications, and using a handheld mobile phomne while driving. There is a clear tendency for the rate of violations to go down. Drivers overestimate the risk of apprehension. Vehicle technology has the greatest potential for reducing traffic offences.
