    There is a car tracking me.

    There is a car tracking me.
    There is a car following me.
    There is a car tailed me.

    What's the correct verb to say a car is follow me on purpose.

    Re: There is a car tracking me.

    Why did you choose 'tailed' instead of the correct and consistent 'tailing' in the last sentence?
    Naturally the second sentence means closest to what you want. You could use 'tailing'. 'Tracking' isn't so common.
