The South-East police district informed TV 2 at 07.20 that they had six ongoing traffic accidents that they were working on.

Asking people to consider bus

Among other things, they report a traffic accident at 07.40 on the E18 at Holmestrand between three vehicles traveling in the same direction. And just before that they reported a traffic accident between a bus and a car. Here, only the driver was in the bus.

– There are thirteen reports of ongoing traffic accidents in the South-East now, so it is probably slippery on the roads. In several of these accidents, we have received reports that it is slippery, says operations manager Merete Kvaal in the police to TV 2.

— There is only one thing to do, take it easy, and make sure you have the right tires on! Keep your distance, and if in doubt, take the bus and consider whether you have to drive.

– Worse driving conditions

Weather forecaster Isabella Martinsen on TV 2 says that it is mainly Southern and Eastern Norway that will receive precipitation on Monday as a result of a low pressure near the Kattegat.

– There is a fresh wind field, up against the gale, both along the coast and exposed parts of the mountain.

– The combination of snow and wind means that we get poor visibility and slightly worse driving conditions.

She further says that people must be extra observant that there may be freezing rain in coastal areas as a result of the fact that the temperature is expected to rise slightly during the week.

– The precipitation changes to rain, so it can eventually freeze to ice on the ground.
