Data exchange between Member States

The principle of information exchange between Member States to allow cross-border prosecution of violators of certain traffic offences is not questioned. The focus of the ruling of 6 May 2014 is elsewhere. It repeals Directive 2011/82/EU, which contains the tool, on the grounds that it falls not so much under the jurisdiction of the European Union for mutual assistance in criminal prosecution than under its competence on transport. Indirectly, this judicial decision demonstrates that transport policy is part of the heart of the EU competences. A new Directive should be adopted within one year in accordance with the procedures arising from the Union’s competences on transport.
