    In November 2010, a project called "The Fun Theory" was tested in Stockholm, Sweden.

    The speed of motorists was monitored, and those who obeyed speed limits, were rewarded by entering their name in a lottery. The money for this came from a portion of the money collected from those drivers who didn't obey speed limit.

    During the test, the average speed dropped from 32 km to 25 km per hour.
