What to give the Tesla driver who has everything: technology that watches to make sure they're not being followed and the car isn't getting stolen.

Scout does this by using facial recognition software and an automatic license-plate reader, both of which are outlawed in some states.

Motus released its 2019 Mobile Workforce Benchmark Report, which identified rising costs, increased business mileage and volatile fuel prices as key trends that affected the mobile workforce in 2018.
