Icelandic Road Tolls and Tunnels

In the north of Iceland there is a tunnel called Vaðlaheiðargöng. The tunnel lies between Akureyri and Húsavík. Vaðlaheiðargöng is the ONLY road toll in Iceland. However there is no toll gate. So how can you pay? The system in Vaðlaheiðargöng is an automatic system which reads the license plate number on the car when you drive through the tunnel.
