In the state of Georgia is it illegal to put a GPS tracking device on my partners car without their knowledge?

ScottyMacEsq :

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.

ScottyMacEsq :


Currently in the State of Georgia it is legal for anyone to place a GPS device on another persons motor vehicle. The only restriction is that the device must be installed on the vehicle while it’s parked in a public place. In Georgia legislature ried to pass a law in Jan. and Feb. of 2009 to make it illegal to put a GPS tracker on someone else's vehcile, but it did not pass and no law was put into effect as of yet.


ScottyMacEsq :

So the current state of the law is that a GPS tracker can be put on a vehicle, but it could be the basis for a "harassment" restraining order.
