Red Light District in Iceland

There is a big difference between days of the week when it comes to people driving through red lights during morning rush hour traffic, according to a new two-week study by Icelandic insurance company VÍS.

On Thursdays, close to 60 percent of drivers drove through a red light in the suburb of Grafarvogur, where the study was conducted. On Mondays, it dropped to just one in three.

The company decided to carry out the study as 80 customers per year have traffic accidents

when they drive through a red light. They aim to raise awareness of the dangers in doing so.

If caught running a red light, drivers are fined ISK 15,000 (USD 130, EUR 100), mbl.is reports.
