Experiment tests the honesty of Cincinnati residents

An experiment was held on Fountain Square on Wednesday to test the honesty of Cincinnati residents.

Honest Tea set up a kiosk offering bottles of tea for $1 on the honor system. It was up to each person to decide if they will pay the $1 or take off with a bottle of tea.

The experiment was conducted in other big cities, including New York City, to determine the honesty of Americans.

The results show 95 percent of Cincinnati residents are honest. Salt Lake City and Oakland were 100 percent honest in the experiment.
