Speeding violations recorded by the cameras account for around 40 percent of all Icelandic traffic violations.

What is noteworthy is that last year, foreign drivers of rental cars left unpaid speeding tickets amounting to 50 million ISK.

The vast majority are fined for driving at speeds of 96-110 km per hour, approximately 60-70 miles per hour.
