Co-operative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) are emerging rapidly due to recent development in Global NavigationSatellite System GNSS systems and mobile internet. The main goal of these systems is to improve traffic conditions and safetylevel on the road networks. With the rapid growth of smartphone technologies and mobile internet, C-ITS based on smartphonemay contribute increasingly in vehicle data collection and in traffic safety and sustainability issues.This paper, extending previous research results, explores the possibilities of using smartphone applications coupled with a centralserver GIS (Geographic Information System) web system to contribute to traffic safety and to reduce fuel consumption. The ideaof a co-operative system in which GPS (Global Positioning System) enabled smartphones are capable to acquire individualvehicle’s kinematics is extended to take into account both safety and fuel consumption issues. Information in the system is sharedon a web server for promoting more sustainable and safe driving styles. The co-operative system allows drivers to examineinformation about their individual driving style and consumptions allowing a better use of the road. Road operators can use thesystem to find critical points on the network and to promote traffic safety.
