Here in the USA, some car rental companies tried to add a surcharge (fine) to your bill if you exceeded the posted speed limits as determined by the GPS in the car. Courts puts a stop to the practice, but the question remains: Who has access to the database of where you travel (and how fast), and where you stop (and for how long)? And how long is that data kept? I'm not paranoid, I have a rational fear based on past behavior.
