Drunks past midnight in more than one sense...
Near the town centre's Storgaten's Mesna river bridge, there seems to be a collection point for drunks thrown out of the pubs due to exessive drinking. Go past them without argument - this is the place where moods and arguments heat up into the night and where alcohol-induced random violence may take place.
Slippery streets in winter
The steep east-west streets of Lillehammer are often icy in winter and driving here and parking without the proper tyres or experience can be interesting.
Likewise, clearing and gravelling the pavements are the responsibility of the house owners, but it seem sometimes that they are on longish holidays. So after a long day of skiing, you broke your leg on the main street, ja?
During snow melt (late March-April), all the dust, gravel and litter and dog crap from the last four months seem to ooze onto the streets and turn into dust and grit. Not pleasant.
Later in spring there is a spring cleaning campaign, and the town looks spic and span again.
