Wisconsin Bans Secret GPS Tracking

A legislative committee in Wisconsin has approved a bill outlawing the secret placement of a GPS device on a vehicle.  The legality of secretly tracking a person’s movement has been a hot topic of debate around the country.

Under the bill, secretly placing a GPS tracking device on a person’s vehicle or otherwise using a GPS device to gain information on a person’s movements is a misdemeanor and the culprit can be fined up to $10,000 and sentenced to nine months in jail.

The new bill was approved unanimously.
