I agree the data needs clear ownership and clear usage. Collecting the data that is considered public makes us all vulnerable to privacy issues we never considered. Though it may seem odd we have an entitelment to privacy even in public venues.

I hope no one lets the City of Chicago (or Cook County, or whatever body oversees this sensor job) to get away with the cliched response, "The data belong to the citizens and taxpayers of Chicago."
Any word on if/when they'll release any of the data, and if they do, how often they'll update or refresh it? This could yield a treasure trove of insights for public safety officials, retailers, city planners, and probably 300 other sectors affected by traffic patterns and volume changes.
