Well, that's nice to know. Norway is also a society of rules, regulations and control with a lot of concern about safety, including traffic: vehicles, drivers and roads. I suspect there is a connection there... With 39 years of neurosurgery I have seen (and studied) my share of consequences of accidents, road and others - with and without protective and safety gear. For me, the choice is simple. Seems like we agree on the matter.

Yes I'm with you on that Robbie.

We both live where the roads are comparatively safe, and without seeing statistics just seeing the standards of driving in other countries makes me realise we are better off than most.
