Yes, but as mentioned elsewhere, Europe seems to do tunnels, switchbacks and such instead of the rather steep passes we have. It is common for US highways to have turnouts on the *ascent* side of these passes to allow motorists and truckers to pull over and either let their overheating rig cool off or let other traffic pass.the robot boxes don't seem to min mountains here, and Norway is pretty much all lakes and mountains.
16-18% grade is not uncommon for non-Interstate highways and I have more than once seen a 30% grade. Interstates are supposed to max out at 7% but there are exceptions.
