MA Lawmakers Push to Restrict Use of AET Data

The Boston Globe reports, “Massachusetts lawmakers are proposing to restrict how the state can use sensitive data collected by a new all-electronic tolling system, including information about motorists’ travel history and driving speeds. Companion bills [H 768 and S 1936] would bar the state Department of Transportation, which collects and stores the tolling data, from using it for virtually anything but charging and collecting tolls and would prevent the agency from sharing the data unless required by warrant.”
