Economy and business: Despite the fine weather and dry road surface, there were a number of overturns and accidents involving motorcycles.

– It’s good to start slowly so that you get back into training with riding a motorcycle. I don’t know the background to the accidents we’ve had, but it makes sense to take it a bit easy – you’re simply rusty, says operations manager Roger Litlatun in the West police district to VG.

In the West police district there were no serious accidents, but they received a good number of reports of minor accidents and rollovers.

The serious accidents took place further east. From Vestby, a man in his 50s was flown to Ullevål hospital with serious injuries, and at Notodden on Wednesday evening two MCs were involved in what according to the police appears to be a serious accident. There have also been a number of minor motorcycle accidents, as well as some overturns.

According to Trygg Trafikk, 21 motorbike drivers died on Norwegian roads in 2022 and the same number last year.
