If there is one thing that people like to discuss it's the price of gasoline. This is because everyone drives and everyone knows what it's like to sit in front of a pump and watch the dollars go up and up and up as they fill their motor vehicle with fuel. Of course, most people don't think much about how the price of gas gets to the number that it gets at. They probably assume it's all based on supply and demand, along with other factors related to the global economy. Naturally, with the United States being a net importer of fuel, gas prices here are certainly related to stability of world markets and efficiency in oil producing countries. However, gas is also taxed by the state in a number of different ways to provide funding for new roads and the maintenance of others. This raises the cost of fuel and the cost can be significant depending on the state the consumer is located in.
VMT taxes are a way that some states are looking to even the playing field when it comes to gasoline taxes because this new form of tax would charge people by the actual total of miles driven. It would also replace the current model of tax in place. How VMT taxes would be assessed would be through the use of locational based technologies that use GPS tracking devices to calculate mileage driven. The GPS tracking system would be equipped on the vehicle of the driver and the GPS device would determine every location that driver has been. Daily driving reports that break down mileage would be used to show exactly how much wear and tear that motorist contributed to public roads. This would make it easier to determine the amount that driver should pay for road maintenance. The goal of the VMT tax would be to make those who drive more pay more for road maintenance.
Most stories in the news associated with GPS vehicle tracking tend to be those that focus on privacy rights being infringed upon. Naturally, privacy has became a topic making more and more headlines with stories about the NSA surveillance, domestic drones and more. This is the one problem that VMT taxes will certainly encounter if they are to be applied across the board to every state because the taxes would need to be assessed by mileage driven, which will need to be accounted for using GPS tracking systems. The challenge would be having the majority of people agreeing that having the government monitoring their every move with GPS tracking would be a positive thing.
GPS tracking technology is constantly evolving and making life better for businesses concerned with fleet management and consumers in need of automotive security solutions. The technology is accurate, affordable and reliable, making it the perfect mechanism to be used for taxation. The only problem is that mechanism also provides a wealth of personal data related to driving activity and that will be the hurdle VMT taxes will need to jump.
Would you allow the government to place a GPS tracker on your vehicle if it resulted in lower gas prices?Last Updated on Tuesday, 24 December 2013 01:54
No AMC television show has been more successful capturing both viewers and critic's hearts than Breaking Bad. The show revolves around a character named Walter White who after receiving a terminal diagnosis of lung cancer decides to look for alternative methods to make sure his family is financially supported after his death. Being a chemistry teacher, Walter decides to cook methamphetamine, but his knowledge of chemicals results in boom in demand for his "Blue Sky" speed. Walter finds himself entangled in a drug world he knew nothing about and is forced to engage in all sorts of different levels of violence and surveillance. However, what caught the eye of many viewers was the use of a particular security product Walter used to monitor vehicle driving activity of a target. Now people everywhere are asking how to find the GPS vehicle tracking device featured on Breaking Bad.
The small GPS tracking system with exterior magnetic mount featured on Breaking Bad does exist and it goes by the name GPS Tracking Key. However, the television show hardly scratched the surface on what the GPS data logger can actually do. For example, the GPS tracker on Breaking Bad can provide detailed driving activity reports that include every location a driver has been, total mileage driven and more. The data from the tracking device can also be viewed using Google Earth to provide a more unique view of historical driving activity through the use of the satellite image program.
"The tracking device on Breaking Bad has been one of our top selling vehicle monitoring units because the device is easy to operate, tracks data every second and requires no monthly service fees", explained a sales rep for global GPS tracking company Tracking System Direct. "Often times people will contact us to talk about the Breaking Bad tracker and then inquire about the other personal or vehicle tracking systems we offer. They are then excited to hear about the next generation of passive trackers we offer along with the real-time tracking devices such as the SilverCloud."
The GPS car tracker seen on Breaking Bad has a retail price of $139.00 and can be purchased 7 days a week at the Tracking System Direct online store.Last Updated on Sunday, 22 December 2013 21:15

A couple weeks back the editors at Tracking System Direct blogged a story about how a GPS tracking device was found on a automobile belonging to the Judd family. Of course, initial speculation led many to believe that the GPS tracker was likely placed on the vehicle owned by one of the celebrity women but today a new twist has been revealed. That twist was brought to the eye when police received a complaint from Ashley Judd stating that her sister Wynona was the individual who placed the tracking system on the car.
In a report filed by Ashley to officers in Tennessee the actress claims her half sister put a GPS tracking system on Ashley's vehicle to monitor everywhere she was going. However, the police documentation is very hush hush about what reasons Wynona would have for trying to monitor Ashley's vehicle using GPS tracking.
A mechanic discovered the GPS tracker on the vehicle owned by Ashley when a person connected with the family brought the automobile in and asked the mechanics to scan the vehicle for any possible GPS monitoring systems. It did not take the car specialists long before they confirmed suspicions and found the car tracking device.
When asked about the news story, police responded that the use of GPS tracking systems violated Tennessee Code 39-13-606, which protects privacy of people from electronic monitoring devices such as GPS vehicle tracking systems. That means Wynona could be charged with engaging in a criminal act for putting a GPS device on Ashley's vehicle since the GPS system was placed without consent. The penalty for placing a GPS tracker system on a vehicle without owner consent can result on a hefty fine as well as time in jail. Not to mention, additional charges could be filed for invasion of privacy.
Will Ashley pursue criminal charges against her sister or do you think the charges will be dropped in an attempt to avoid unwanted publicity?
GPS tracking and surveillance laws are different in each state. Therefore, those with questions about what is legal when it comes to GPS vehicle monitoring should consult with a attorney or police department in their area.Last Updated on Thursday, 19 December 2013 20:19
Over the past few years no subject has been under more debate and scrutiny among 4th Amendment advocates, police agencies and lawyers than the use of GPS tracking system technology and how it relates to vehicle monitoring. This is because the use of GPS trackers among government and police agencies to conduct personal surveillance has been heavily criticized for infringing on the privacy rights of citizens. However, people should understand that an individual's right to privacy is entirely based on if that individual would have what is defined as a reasonable expectation to that privacy. This is essentially what is looked at when GPS tracker systems are placed upon a person's automobile.
Clearly, there are certain forums people understand they cannot expect privacy. Such as the case if a person sends out a message using Twitter or posts something on their Facebook wall (assuming they don't have privacy settings). When information is exposed in a public forum privacy simply cannot be expected. However, this same principle applies to people participating in everyday actions such as driving down the street. People who drive down the street can't cover up their license plates because when people become part of the public their information also becomes public. If a person doesn't want their vehicle seen by the public they have every right to keep it hidden in their garage. Basically, if a person is in public they shouldn't have an expectation of privacy.
Although the laws regarding the use of GPS vehicle tracking devices continue to change in different states, in many cases a person or government agency can place a GPS tracker on a person'a automobile if that automobile is in a public location. The street, the store or essentially any location outside of a person's private property could be classified as public. This means a police officer could affix a real-time GPS tracking system underneath a person's vehicle while they are inside a store shopping and then monitor the driving activity of that vehicle for days or weeks! Police authorities who go through the proper legal channels and acquire a warrant could also be granted the ability to place a GPS tracker inside the cab of a person's vehicle or hard-wire the tracker system.
There have been a number of cases reaching high courts involving police use of GPS tracking systems to monitor vehicles and people suspected of engaging in illegal activity. Of course, each case has had different results based on procedure and state laws so it is difficult to set a concrete standard, but regardless the authorities do have some ability to utilize search warrants as a method of using GPS trackers on vehicles.
What people should know is that they should not expect privacy while conducting affairs in public, and that police will always have some authority to use GPS tracking systems if they can establish some justifiable cause why. Therefore, people engaging in illegal conduct and activity should be aware that at any given time they could be under surveillance.Last Updated on Thursday, 12 December 2013 20:32
