According to director of Strætó, Reynir Jónsson, the system is currently being tested on one of the company’s buses, ruv.is reports.

Violence against bus drivers and passengers is an increasing problem in Iceland, Reynir says, and cameras are used in most neighboring countries.

The operation will be carried out in discussion with drivers and passengers, Reynir emphasizes.
