Using GPS To Track Your Spouse

GPS tracking devices are all the rage. They have become so portable that you (or a private investigator) could attach one covertly to your spouses's car and record all of the comings and goings of that vehicle. That may seem like a very cost-effective method of surveillance, but if the car is titled to or leased solely in your spouse's name, you could be running afoul of the law. Virginia Code Section 18.2-146 makes it a Class 1 misdemeanor to "individually or in association with one or more others willfully break, injure, TAMPER WITH or remove a part or parts of any vehicle...for any purpose against the will or without the consent of the owner of the vehicle...." This "can" be interpreted to include placement of a GPS tracking device.
