Norwegian Personal Space


§ 30 You shall not sit down next to someone already sitting on one of the extra wide seats at the front of Norwegian buses

… Even if you are used to other places in the world where seats like this can easily fit three persons

 

 

 

Officially these are called “mother-and-kid- seats” or, unofficially, “big-people-seats”.

They are definitely not for two passengers who do not know each other.
