It seems impossible to someone living in the United States, but Norway’s done it. Speed limit laws and reducing the very presence of cars in the city center and downtown areas have resulted in a very aggressive, downward trend of traffic-related fatalities in the Nordic country’s capital city. There was only one traffic-related death in Oslo in all of 2019. Amazing.
No children were killed in traffic in Norway last year, Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten reported. Anders Hartmann, who works as an adviser at Oslo’s municipal authority department for environment and transport, also tweeted there were no pedestrian or cyclist fatalities, either.
