Ensuring the safety of travelers by the use of technology, and protecting the personal information that is collected for those applications, is an important transportation policy concern. Perceptions of an abuse of privacy protection is a growing obstacle to speed monitoring and red-light-running applications. Many states and numerous localities have barred the use of technology for these safety applications. This report offers a detailed review, from a legal and operational perspective, of how personal privacy is (or is not) protected. Two unique sections contained in the report are (1) a state-by-state and court-involved inventory of relevant laws, and (2) a survey of the members of ITS America questioning how developers, manufacturers, operators, marketers, researchers, and deplorers of transportation technology comply with current privacy principles. -- Report website.
