The European Court of Justice has ruled that a law that permits member states to share information on drivers who commit traffic offenses while in another EU country is not legal.

The ruling said Brussels must re-draft the law based on road safety and not police cooperation.

The court said speeding and drink-driving do not constitute crimes as defined under police cooperation rules.
