There are many types of motorists on the roads. Some can be over-optimistic, and others a little lackadaisical.

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens vegvesen/NPRA) stopped two motorists near Sandnes yesterday, who may have thought they could predict a change in the weather better than the meteorologists.

“There aren’t many who are still driving round with summer tyres on, but we still get a few every now and then,” the NPRA’s Leiv Gunnar Skeie told NRK.

And in a separate incident, another haphazard driver had only scraped the ice off parts of his windows.

Both motorists were stopped from driving further until they’d remedied their discrepancies.
