The situation was where the Coast Guard instructed the person to trigger it, as they were not able to find them easily without it. I doubt that even in State that are getting a bit ambitious with the charging for expenses wouldn't do so just because this was tripped (though,m in those cases, you might already be on the bill for calling it in in the first place).
Not sure where I read or heard about it, but I do remember noting this fact.
