Police in Iceland have stopped tourist motorists who were more concerned with the celestial phenomenon than keeping their eyes on the road.
The Northern Lights, or aurora, have fascinated humans for thousands of years, and for tourists who come from southern latitudes, to be able to experience the Northern Lights with their own eyes, is a major reason for the trip to northern places such as Iceland.
Now the Iceland Magazine reports that the police in Iceland go out and warn against driving under the influence of the aurora, after having stopped a car that used the whole road. First police suspected drunk driving, but it turned out that the driver had failed to take his eyes from the colourful lights in the sky.
Shortly after, they stopped another car that struggled to drive straight ahead, and once again it was about sober tourists who could not take their eyes off the amazing sky.
