The Reykjavík Metropolitan Police stopped a driver on Reykjanesbraut highway in Reykjavík late last night speeding at 196 km per hour (121 miles per hour), which is more than double the speed limit of 80 km per hour.

The driver, who was only 17, had their driving license temporarily removed, ruv.is reports.

In Iceland, 17 is the minimum driving age.
