Abstract:     
This article analyzes the 2012 decision in United States v. Jones in which the Court struck down the warrantless electronic surveillance of a car, on which the police had planted a GPS device and tracked 24 hours a day for 28 days. The Court concluded that the physical attachment of the device, without a warrant, violated the defendants expectations of privacy. Unfortunately, the case did not address the many cases where no physical trespass would be necessary to electronically follow a car. I propose a solution that would apply to all cases.
