Can I legally place a GPS tracker on the outside of someone else's car?
Question Details: Regarding new OO law on placing GPS tracking device on car without person's knowledge. What if car is parked in public place when tracking device is placed on outside of car under rear bumper without their knowledge? Is this still prosecutable even though this same information can be obtained by simply following car? I don't have a restraining order or stalking order on me. The information is not going to be used for anything other than just curiosity for myself.
Under Oregon law (see citation below) even if you are not a stalker or not under a restaining order, it is still a class A misdemeanor to attach a tracking device to someone's car without their permisson, and punishable by up to 12 months in jail and fine of up to several thousand dollars.
