We argue that Genetic Improvement can be successfully used for enhancing road traffc data mining. This would support the relevant decision makers with extending the existing network of devices that sense and control city traffc, with the end goal of improving vehicle Flow and reducing the frequency of road accidents. Our position results from a set of preliminary observations emerging from the analysis of open access road trafic data collected in real time by the Birmingham City Council.
