The police may continue to use cruise lights

The government has made fixed blue light on police cars, “cruise light”, permanently allowed.

“The light is used in crime prevention and safety-creating work and aims to signal and make the presence of the police visible,” the government writes in a press release.

A few years ago the police started use a fixed dim blue light on their emergency vehicles. The light reminds those around you that a police car is nearby, which can be a safety and crime prevention tool.

A study conducted by the Norwegian Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) shows that the identification light has a good effect, especially in the dark.

– It has been shown that the light has good effects and now we make it possible for the police to use it more permanently in order to be seen and create safety both when stationary and while driving, says Infrastructure and Housing Minister Andreas Carlson (KD).

The government has decided to change the traffic regulations so that police cars can continue to use fixed blue lights, so-called “cruise lights”. The change comes into force on 1 October 2023.
