In a press release, German Federal Data Protection Commissioner Andrea Voßhoff criticised the German government’s draft amendment to the Road Transport Law (Straßenverkehrsgesetz). The amendments seek to clarify liability issues in the context of automated driving by introducing a duty to use an electronic memory device for the storage of driving data. Voßhoff stated that the data in question would constitute personal data and criticised the draft as it does not specify which driving data will be stored, whether it may be deleted in the short term, or whether and for which purpose authorities and third parties, such as those involved in accidents, may access the data. The draft is due to be adopted by the Bundestag before the parliamentary summer break.
