BATON ROUGE- The Jindal administration has started installing tracking devices in the entire state government's fleet.

All 10,543 vehicles owned by state government agencies are being outfitted with Global Positioning System, or GPS, devices that follow the routes chosen, monitor speeds and chart driving habits, feeding all the particulars into a computerized database.
Jan Cassidy, assistant commissioner for procurement, says the state expects to save $30 million over the next five years by reducing the costs of fuel, maintenance and insurance.
Cassidy says the project will cost $10 million.
