In an interview with the Sunday freesheet ‘De Zondag’, Ms Peeters said “We want to study drivers’ behaviour at certain specific locations. This will help prevent the creation of new accident blackspots”.
The first areas where the MIA plan will be rolled out in mid-April will be the Limburg traffic region in Limburg Province and the Midwest traffic region in West Flanders.
The Flemish Transport Minister says that she doesn’t see any privacy issues arising for the use of drones. "Who is driving or what they are doing is of no interest to us. We want to study drivers’ behaviour in certain situations. This will help us prevent accidents".
