VID means traffic information service
The VID aims to provide traffic information to television and radio stations, in addition it also provides traffic management services and operates traffic data. The VID has been in existence since 1998, after the National police forces stopped distributing traffic information to civilians. The data obtains the VID from various sources and these data are merged and presented to road users in different ways (radio, TV, Internet, SMS services, etc.). The information is often presented by broadcasters themselves, but for local channels the read version of Traffic information readers of the VID is often used. The VID also has a file-measurement system (a network of sensors that registers Bluetooth signals), these data are sometimes also used in the detection of the police. More information can be found on the website.
