Sad trend is spreading among motorists despite double punishment

10 years ago it was made twice as punishable to drive too fast past roadworks in Denmark. Nevertheless, the number of accidents is increasing.

It's just some of the things road workers see around the country when motorists drive past them. Some even have far too much speed.

Even though the penalty for simply speeding past a roadworks was doubled 10 years ago.

The latest figures from the Roads Directorate show that in 2022, 347 accidents were registered in connection with road work. And in fact, there has only been more of that kind.

Just 5 years ago, 'only' 263 accidents were registered in connection with road work. Last year, a campaign 'Look after us who works on the road' was supposed to try to reverse the trend among motorists.

Yet again and again stories emerge of motorists literally blowing past roadworks at more than double the speed limit. And even if the police are present.
