GPS Bill Struck Down in Connecticut

May 28, 2002

Connecticut legislators failed to adopt a bill that would restrict the use of GPS tracking systems in rental car fleets. Introduced by the General Law Committee, Bill 5254 in Connecticut's General Assembly would have prohibited car rental operators from levying speeding fines after a GPS system indicated a customer was speeding. Moreover, the bill would have prohibited operators from selling or distributing GPS-generated data to a third party without the written permission of the customer. Introduction of the bill was prompted by the Acme Rent-A-Car case here, which grabbed national headlines.
