Kentucky State Fleet Uses GPS to Monitor Non-State Trips

May 23, 2007

FRANKFORT, KY – The state of Kentucky recently purchased 300 GPS devices for a pilot project in an attempt to reveal if their state-owned, take-home vehicles are being used for personal travel, WHAS 11 News reported. Across Kentucky nearly 11, 000 passenger vehicles are marked with state stickers and license plates. The state reportedly has no idea if some of those state-owned, take-home cars, are being abused.

WHAS 11 News conducted a review that found the actual number of take-home vehicles is higher than the 924 reported by state agencies last year. But of those 924, 760 are Crown Victorias, SUVs, or trucks.

The state plans to buy smaller vehicles such as the Jeep Compass to replace Expeditions and the Impala to replace Crown Victorias.
