Abstract [en]

Immigrants make up 13.1 % of the population of Norway in 2012. Immigrant drivers in Norway have considerably higher accident risk, measured as personal-injury accidents per 1000 license holders, than drivers born in Norway. Drivers from the Middle East and Africa have more than twice the accidents risk of drivers born in Norway or immigrant drivers from the western world. Accident risk is calculated using the national registers of road accidents, driver’s licenses and the Norwegian population. Factors which may explain these differences in accident risk were studied by focus group interviews and a questionnaire survey. Language problems, worries about family in the country of origin, attitudes to road traffic rules and driving behavior reflected in the number of road traffic violation fines may contribute to explaining the differences in road accident risk.
