Abstract

The new EU General Safety Regulation introduces new car safety measures, including the introduction of a mandatory event data recorder (EDR). The introduction of the EDR gives rise to data protection concerns. This commentary argues that although it is applaudable that the EU legislator has incorporated data protection rules in the General Safety Regulation, it is unnecessarily overcomplicating matters. A simplified approach is proposed.
