Why Have the Road Traffic Fatalities Gone Up the Last Year (2007) in the Nordic Countries?
Pourquoi Les Accidents De La Route Ont-Ils Augmente L'Annee Derniere (2007) Dans Les Pays Nordiques?
There has been an increase in Nordic highway fatalities in the last few years. This has caused widespread concern, since it comes after years of steady decline in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. The author examines possible explanations for this trend. Issues include increased traffic, motorbike and moped usage, and the difficulty of making large improvements in a good safety situation.
