That sounds familiar. I don't put tracking on those items, but try to help with the hiding. That way I can find those items again.

As for tracking a demented person: that can only be done without the person knowing, if that is legal. That means that batteries must last a long time; frequent charging would attract attention and resistance quite soon.

The dutch house of commons, or whatever it should be called in english, is actually a bit short on experience. At the last elections, the average experience of the new house was a mere 3.8 years!

Comment Re:Whatever Speed I Want (Score 1) 717

Many german highways don't have upper limits, or have flexible limits: when it is raining or with too much traffic, an upper limit of 130 kph (81 mph) kicks in. German drivers are in my experience well behaved, with strict obedience to speed limits and no tailgating. It makes driving on their roads fun and relaxed.
When travelling in germany, I usually pick a speed between 100 and 115 mph, and many cars still overtake me at much higher speeds.
