Abstract: Roads are ever more congested, pollution keeps rising and traffic-related deaths remain at
unacceptable levels. It is clear that society’s needs with regard to transportation and
mobility have become unsustainable. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are often
heralded as a potential solution to this problem, yet have still to yield tangible results. The
EU has, however, adopted the ITS Directive, aiming for an EU-wide implementation of ITS
solutions. Three questions are raised. First, can the ITS Directive really provide for the
required substantial provisions in this field? Second, as ITS solutions are often deemed to
be pervasive and intrusive, how does the ITS Directive interact with the EU legal framework
on privacy and data protection? Third, given the involvement of private commercial
entities in the field of providing road, traffic and travel data, can a publiceprivate
partnership be found to allow for the re-use of both public and private sector data in ITS
