Tele Atlas Camera Van

This evening on Kennedy Road I drove behind a Van with several camera’s behind and on his side.

Tele Atlas road survey

As I drove further, I noticed a “Tele Atlas Road Survey” sign on the side. Apparently, it’s one of those cars they talk about here. Must be pretty cool gear.

I wonder what Belgian privacy laws say about that though. I’m sure it’s legit, but what would be the difference with e.g. me recording the road from inside my house (which I think is illegal)?
