A new use for GPS trackers: Global positioning satellite (or GPS) receivers are used for all kinds of things, from keeping track of the car you just rented at the airport to finding lost luggage. One disturbed individual even duct-taped a transmitter to his ex-girlfriend's car so he could track her location. Now a Massachusetts politician has proposed using GPS technology to track gangsters and those convicted of domestic abuse. Under the bill proposed by Lieutenant-Governor Kerrey Healey, courts would allow those who violate a restraining order to be fitted with a GPS tracker that would alert authorities if the individual entered a restricted area (their ex-wife's home, a child's school, etc.). Not only that, but the cost of $10 a day would be paid for by the offender.
