The BBC is reporting on a UK study that estimates 50 to 450 instances of GPS jamming each day, and recorded 60 incidents in one location over a six month period. The researchers attributed most of these to people driving vehicles with tracking devices who, well – don’t want to be tracked.
While the article doesn’t explicitly state that GPS jamming is illegal in the UK, it is implied:
Mr Curry said the research had also resulted in the detection and confiscation by the police of one jammer.
“We detected a pattern and they [the police] were able to go and sit and wait,” he said.
It would be interesting to see a similar study in the US.
