Sensors of connected cars generate a large body of data. Although intended to enhance vehicle functions, these data can be used for many more purposes. In literature, much attention has gone to added commercial services. The data can however also be used for government services, such as for planning, organizing and execution of road inspections and maintenance and for informing government (mobility) policy. The OEM finds itself in a gatekeeper position in relation to the data. In relation to commercial added services, the gatekeeper position of OEMs fuels concerns about adverse economic/welfare implications. Does the gatekeeper function raise similar (oreven very different) concerns about the use of data for government purposes? This paper identifies potential concerns in this field and considers starting points for regulatory responses to the concerns. A forecast of concerns and responses is complicated by the rapid pace of technical developments and the continuously changing roles of actors in the field.
