Primer on the MassDOT AET System’s Data Storage and Privacy Answers Only Some Outstanding Questions

The Boston Globe, conveniently enough, provides a Q&A on AET and privacy, reporting that, “concerns have also been raised about the volume of data the technology collects as drivers pass through toll zones, and about how that data is being stored and used.” reports that the public and state legislators want to know more about the new AET system, noting that, “Some details, like the system’s October go-live date, have been known for months; others, like system’s ability to track drivers’ speeds, were disclosed in the last several weeks; and more, like the fees at each gantry, are still unknown.”

WCVB News reports that MassDOT will provide some answers today, including details of its plan for demolishing tollbooths.
