Illinois Law Protects Drivers’ I-PASS Data
GEO PRIVACY—U.S.January 6, 2012
An Illinois Tollway policy went into effect January 1 to protect the information of drivers enrolled in the I-PASS program in accordance with a recent state law, reports the Chicago Sun Times. The policy "ensures that the Illinois Tollway will not be forced, under Illinois' Freedom of Information law or by other means, to disclose any personal data, including the date, time, location or direction of travel of I-PASS customers, with anyone other than the customer." Exceptions will be made for subpoenas, public safety emergencies or other lawful purposes, the report states.
