Youth Accidents on Norwegian Roads
11 May 2011, Norwegian Ministry of Transports and Communications

Road traffic accidents constitute the main cause of death among young people (aged 15 to 24) in the OECD-countries. The Norwegian Ministries of Transport and Communications, of Health and Care Services and of Justice and the Police organize in common a press seminar on road traffic accidents among youth. The seminar includes interventions by ministers, civil servants and researchers on the problem of youth accidents. We hope to give rise to a debate on the nature of youth accidents as well as their future prevention.
