Look at this map before attempting to drive somewhere. As you can see, most inland roads are closed in this season.
“The transponder’s personalised signal would be picked up when the car passed through an intersection, and then relayed to a central computer which would calculate the charge according to the intersection and the time of day and add it to the car’s bill” - Nobel Economics Prize winner William Vickrey, proposing a system of electronic tolling for the Washington metropolitan area, 1959
In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

As seen in the map provided by Italystf, the road to Thingvellir is snow - covered, though.

That is ok, I'm used to 10 cm of snow with proper winter tires.
