ITS Action Plan proposes follow-up measures for further ITS development in the Czech Republic. Specifically, these include obtaining and ensuring the transfer and quality of source data, storing data, assessment and processing and subsequent forwarding of the information to users or business entities. Other measures relate to traffic control, process of passenger or goods carriage and provision of related services. Final measures focus on compliance with road traffic rules and systemic and cross-section measures and are divided into technical, organizational and R&D categories.

Serious accidents occurr because of fog and induced the Concessionary Society to implement a system aimed at timely warning motorway users when visibility is very low. The aim is to minimize the risk of accidents and to “drive” users within the foggy area, encouraging them to reduce speed to match the low visibility. This system consists in apposite lighting posts placed on the carriageway side. It also aims at avoiding other risks, such as the formation of queues and traffic slowdowns in particular.
COMPASS4D is a European project aiming to increase drivers’ safety and comfort by reducing the severity of road accidents as well as avoiding queues and traffic jams. Seven European cities (Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Helmond, Newcastle, Thessaloniki, Verona and Vigo) have joined forces with the shared objective of substantially improving road safety, increasing energy efficiency and reducing level of congestions for road transport by implementing Cooperative ITS.
Italy has transposed the ITS Directive (Dir. 2010/40/CE) through Article 8 of the Law-Decree n. 179/2012. Complying to that article, this Decree sets the basic guidelines to ensure the design, deployment and development of ITS in Italy, in a way which is coordinated, integrated and consistent with policies and activities at EU level. These guidelines are the methodological and operational basis for the subsequent definition of a national Action Plan on the development of ITS
