Commission vs. Parliament and Council (road safety related traffic offences)
The Court annuls the directive on cross-border exchange of information on road safety related traffic offenses, considering that both in respect of its aim and its content, the directive is a measure to improve transport safety and should therefore have been adopted on the basis of Article 91 TFEU (transport policy).
The effects of the directive are nevertheless maintained for a maximum one-year period.
