Icelandic nation says Stop

A nationwide campaign for improved traffic culture was formally launched at 5 pm yesterday under the heading Nú segjum við stopp, or We Say Stop, with public meetings held throughout Iceland. The campaign urges Icelandic residents to sign an online declaration vowing to show utmost care on the road. By 7 pm yesterday some 7,000 people had signed the declaration. This is reported in all the main media.

At the Reykjavík meeting, held at Hallgrímskirkja church, Minister of Communications Sturla Bödvarsson announced the measures authorities intend to take to improve safety on the roads. These include construction of traffic circles at critical intersections and the widening of busy highways. Nineteen people have died in traffic accidents so far this year.
