Dont always listen to the GPS
Here are the latest episodes of drivers who relied on their GPS for navigating with disastrous results:
>Grand Canyon NV. A group of 16 adults and 10 children in several cars were dutifully following their satellite navigation system when they screeched to a halt as the road ended. They got out and found they were close to the edge of the canyon, lost in the wilderness. It had gotten dark and they decided to make camp until the next day, when they were able to call on their cellphone for help to find their way back to the highway.
>King's Lynn, England. A driver of a Streamline taxi minibus was obediently following the route instructions that were being issued by his satellite navigation system. The route he followed caused him to drive the bus right into the River Nar.
>Seattle, WA. While driving his charter bus, Brad Adams, 52, was so busy looking at his GPS navigation system that he crashed the bus into a pedestrian bridge in Seattle's Washington Park Arboretum. The bus is 11 feet, 8 inches high, the bridge, 9 feet. The passengers, 24 high school softball players, were taken to a nearby hospital.
>Skegness, England. A truck driver was transporting 32 tons of freight from Turkey through several European countries with Coral Road in Gibraltar, at the southern tip of Spain as his destination. By following his satellite navigation system he wound up at a dead end in Skegness, England, missing his destination by 1,600 miles. It just so happens that both places have a "Coral Road."
