What is illegal here? Every fourth driver does not know the penalty

Over 3,800 motorists had to contribute to the state coffers last year because they were speeding too fast during a road work. And that kind of thing hits hard. Among other things. because the stall is doubled.

It is going too fast for motorists in Denmark. At least past stretches of roadworks.

This shows figures that the insurance company Gjensidige has obtained access to from the National Police. The figures are high despite the fact that stalls in road work zones have doubled since 2014.

Claims director at Gjensidige, Lene Rasmussen, is also somewhat surprised by the drivers' behavior, which she believes they cannot afford.

– When you speed too fast, you not only expose yourself, but also your fellow road users to danger.

– While motorists are protected by a lot of safety measures in their cars, those who work on the road are enormously exposed if an accident suddenly happens.

– Therefore, one simply cannot afford not to comply with the speed limits that are set in zones with roadworks, says the director.

In connection with the Norwegian Road Directorate's campaign 'Watch out for those who work on roads' last year, it was revealed that in 2021 there were 327 road work-related accidents on Danish roads.

A survey carried out by the analysis company YouGov also shows that every fourth Dane with a driving license does not know that you can expect a fine twice as large when you drive too fast during roadworks.

– There is a reason why this law was enforced, and it is because there are other considerations that you have to take as a driver in these zones.

One can hope, however, that the double toll rate will contribute to more people thinking about it when they drive near roadworks, says Lene Rasmussen.

However, the double fine rate is not the only thing that affects motorists who blow past a roadworks. Already when the speed is 40 percent too high, the chore card smokes conditionally. On all other stretches of road, it only happens when it is going 60 percent too fast.
