The purpose of this project is to investigate hypothesis whether poor performance of foreign heavy goods vehicles drivers in very challenging Norwegian conditions is effect of lack of information. If so, then which information should be provided. When? Where? Data was obtained through mixed-mode survey (face-to-face interviews and self-assisted form) in multiple locations in the country. Local and foreign truckers were asked about information they have and would like to have, while driving in Norway. After analysis of three subgroups of respondents (Norwegians, foreign after introductory programme and random foreign) conclusion was reached, that drivers want general information (i.e. traffic conditions). However, what they need the most is training covering both theory and practice on driving in winter conditions.
