    I'm pretty sure it's illegal to track a person without their consent.

    I"am real sure it's illegal.... and then come on a public forum and ask how to go about doing so covertly .
    Next thing he'll be asking where he can buy a cheap van and what kind of candy do kids like .

    I have front facing Verizon cameras in all my trucks - good for accidents and hard braking plus has a GPS feature.

    This entire situation seems bad

    It appears you have drivers you don’t trust or believe
    And by you wanting to secretly follow them is again strange

    Not sure how you can follow or track them but you can track your equipment

    If they and you are on the up and up I would simply tell them you are adding tracking to the equipment due to possible theft or damages or whatever

    If they quit then it was coming anyway
    If not then everyone knows to do their jobs and what the expectations are
     
    ProfessionalNoticer Thanks this.

    All my trucks have a separate device in them. Tells me location of truck, speed, idling, turned off, etc. InTouch GPS | Affordable Fleet Tracking Software I don't install in the dash or by the ignition so its not found in a theft situation.

    Probably be better to just let the driver know you think he is doing some questionable stuff. If you are trying to gather evidence to fire or sue him, I don't think it's legal to surveil him without his knowledge
