Abstract The report presents new estimates of road traffic risks in Norway according to road user groups, age and gender. Exposure data are collected from the national Norwegian travel survey 2009 and annual reports of transport performance in Norway published by the Institute of Transport Economics. Accident data are collected from Statistics Norway (SSB) and from annual reports of road accidents collected by the major Norwegian insurance companies (TRAST). The figures show that road traffic risks have decreased steadily over time in Norway. Two-wheelers and pedestrians are most at risk, car drivers and passengers are least at risk. Young and elderly road users are more at risk than other age groups. The risk of personal injury for car occupants is especially high on Saturday night. For most road user subgroups (by age/gender) we find significant risk reductions from one period to the next.
