Only one person died as a result of traffic accidents in Oslo in 2019.
Official data also revealed that for the first time ever, no child under the age of 16 died in traffic in Norway over those 12 months.
But while road safety in the capital is at its best ever, the number of people killed in traffic in the rest of the country rose slightly from 108 in 2018 to 110 last year.
By comparison, 126 people died on London’s roads in 2019, an increase of 22 from the previous year. Despite this, the UK is considered one of the safest countries in the EU for traffic accidents with 30 deaths per one million inhabitants.
At the other end of the scale for road safety are Bulgaria and Romania, with an average of more than 90 deaths per one million inhabitants.
