A major Government objective is to improve road safety. Therefore, the Ministry of Transport and Communications presented the transport policy document, National Transport Plan 2002-2011 to the Norwegian Parliament. Safety is an important responsibility for anyone involved in transport, whatever mode. The greatest challenge, however, lies in reducing person injuries. More than 300 people loose their lives in road accidents every year in Norway, and more than 12,000 people are severely injured.
