Driving in Norway
The minimum age of a driver is 18 years in Norway and most other Scandanavian countries. The use of seat belts is compulsory for front- and rear-seat passengers. The legal blood alcohol limit is 50 mg and penalties for exceeding it are extremely severe. (Medicines which should not be taken if you intend to drive soon thereafter are marked by a red triangle.) Speed limits are as follows: usually 30 kph in residential areas (note: speed control bumps are not always signposted), 50 kph (30 mph) in built-up areas, 80 kph (50 mph) or 90 kph (56 mph) outside built-up areas, and 80 kph (50 mph) or 90 kph (56 mph) on expressways. Cars towing a caravan or trailer are limited outside built-up areas to 80 kph (50 mph) if the towed vehicle has brakes, and to 60 kph (37 mph) if the towed vehicle does not have brakes.
Trams always have priority. In mountainous areas, vehicles travelling downhill have priority; vehicles going up the hill must reverse into a passing bay if there's not enough room for two vehicles to pass. It is illegal to drive off-road.
Headlights must be on at all times while driving. Excessive use of horns is illegal.
Trams in Oslo should be passed on the right, but they may be passed on the left if there's no room on the right or if travelling on a one-way street.
Police are empowered to collect fines on the spot.
While driving in Norway you'll see a lot of road works. Nothing is being repaired, more than likely the Norwegians are constructing two of their favourite things - holes and tunnels. In more densely populated areas like Oslo, the road works never stop. This is of course common in all cities, but Oslo is unique in the fact the holes in the ground are passed on from genration to generation. This spoils most of the inner city of Oslo and it's advisable to upgrade your suspension before attempting to drive through the city.
Not all of Norway's motor mayhem is man-made. Mother Nature has placed a few spanners in the works. For example, do not attempt to drive on the day of the first snow, it's carnage.
Sheep and reindeer are omnipresent. You can always find them where the hot air exits from the mouth of the, largely unfinished, tunnels. They're in the shadows, waiting for ususpecting foreign drivers. Try not to run them over, they cost an awful lot of money and you'll be scraping wool from your bumper for weeks. While you're at it, try not to drive into any elks, they're awfully big and they'll cost you your life.
Parking on main roads or on bends is not allowed. A sign that reads "All stans forbudt" means No stopping allowed. Parking metres are differentiated as follows: Yellow = one-hour, Gray = two-hour, Brown = three-hour. Parking regulations are strictly enforced.
Foreign licences are accepted for a duration of one year, after which a Norwegian licence must be obtained.
It's illegal to use diesel fuel from the red pump. This fuel is subsidised for farmers. Ink in it stains the tank. If you're found to have such a stained tank, the fine is about $600. Fuel stations are usually closed from 7am to 10pm on weekdays, though these times vary greatly; some stay open 24 hours. During weekends stations are open only in highly populated areas. Major credit cards are not always accepted. Leaded super petrol has an octane rating of 98. Unleaded petrol is called blyfritt kraftstoff or blyfri and has an octane rating of 95.
There's an NOK 12 toll on vehicles up to 3.5 metric tons (3500 kg) entering the centre of Oslo. Vehicles entering the centre of Bergen must pay an NOK 5 toll on weekdays but not on weekends or public holidays. There's a similar NOK 11 toll charged on vehicles entering Trondheim's city centre.
