EU Court Nixes Easy Access to Driving Records
The European Union’s high court kept in line with the bloc’s tight privacy laws on Tuesday with an order for Latvia to stop making people’s driving records easily available to anyone seeking them.
By making people’s past driving offenses available to the public upon request, Latvia is violating the right to privacy, the European Court of Justice found.
The Latvian law over driving records is meant to entice people to become more careful on the roads, but the EU’s high court in Luxembourg said the law goes too far and breaches EU laws protecting against the abuse of personal data.
