EC adopts rules to enhance real-time traffic information

The specifications require the publication of certain types of road and traffic data in a standardised way, such as accidents, road works and road closures, warnings about weather conditions, among others.

The specifications are mandatory for the Trans-European road network and other motorways. For other types of roads, eg, urban areas, Member States are invited to designate priority zones.
