Big Brother has been infringing
on workplace privacy for some time
now, but technology previously used primarily in the private sector is making its way out
and into government-issued vehicles. Many administrators are suggesting that GPS-ified vehicles not only crack down on on-the-clock leisure activities, but curb wasteful spending on excess fuel / lost productivity. Proponents also claim that such a setup enables them to better monitor how efficient (or not) their current processes are. Granted, it's not difficult to see just how polarizing the issue can be, and the Teamsters are already negotiating more contracts to keep workers from being peered upon. Still, if you've grown used to rolling your state-owned ride out to GameStop during lunch, we'd recommend taking a (very
) good look around to ensure that you're truly cruising solo -- or, you know, just stick by the rules.
