Norwegian Government to Teens: ‘No to Sex on Roundabouts’

No matter how much coasting you did during your last semester of high school, Norwegian teens do it better. Every year, the graduating class takes part in russefeiring — a stretch of insane partying that involves drinking heavily, renting party buses, wearing patriotic outfits, and, apparently, having sex in roundabouts.

The latter is apparently enough of a problem that the Norwegian government had to release an official statement, one that doesn’t so much warn as it does politely ask the teens to stop having traffic-circle sex. Per Reuters, the head of the Public Roads Administration, Terje Moe Gustavsen, said the following in “No to sex on roundabouts:”

“Everyone understands that being in and around roundabouts is a traffic hazard. It may not be so dangerous for someone to be without clothes on the bridge, but drivers can get too much of a surprise and completely forget that they are driving.”

Norway, you may have an extremely fun partying culture and an extensive social safety net, but you cannot have it all!
