Still haven't time to spend a lot of time on this, but I will probably
propose a session around road transportation/traffic.

Over the last year, transit has demonstrated to be a very good use case of
open data (although things are not as good as they could be), but traffic,
things have not evolved very fast.

The session would work on defining what could be done to reach the same
level of data in road/traffic data as in the transit world:
- What data is important and who owns it
- What are the barriers and what strategies could be used
- What are the data format (DATEXII, TMDD, Open511, etc.) what are the
strenghs and weakness of each format
- What are the most meaningful use cases to push (traveler information,
emergency services, research, road professionals, etc.)
- Which jurisdiction are the more keen to progress on this (Is there some
known leaders? Which level between local or national level would be the
most willing)
