Company drivers could find themselves driving with a satellite-linked computer dubbed a 'spy in the car'. It will tell their bosses exactly where they are and what they are doing and is expected to be fitted to thousands of fleet motors over the next few months. 'Big brother' will transmit and record information about a vehicle's location, speed and how it is being driven. The device will also let accountants and taxmen check whether a driver is really doing the business mileage that brings tax reductions. The Fleet Command System can be installed in a blue container the size of a chocolate box and can be hidden in a number of places around a vehicle. It works by using satellite-positioning networks to report speed and location through a mobile-phone link to a central computer. The system will also allow companies to check when a driver is using their vehicle for private use. Civil rights group Liberty has condemned the device as 'intrusive and insulting', while the Automobile Association said the system was 'not pleasant'.
