How GPS can make you drive off a cliff!
Technology is doing exactly what all of us have, at least on occasion, dreamed of doing. That is, wiping out all the idiots in the world. Yes, medical technology has allowed us to live longer, but GPS is here to even out the numbers a bit. Well, at the very least, boot the geniuses off of the road. It’s taken down another one, this time 43-year-old male, Robert Jones, who works as a driver. Yes, he does this for a living. He does it for a living is his excuse for listening so closely to the gadget.
The driver took the instructions down a Pennine footpath. When it told him the very narrow steep path was a road, he believed it. The only reason he stopped and didn’t attempt to drive his car down the cliff is that he hit a fence above the Gauxholme railway bridge. He described the Sunday morning incident involving his precious BMW to friends later on as “a nightmare”. Thankfully, the police are charging him with being a total idiot, although they’re calling it driving without due care and attention. I figure that’s police-speak for, too stupid to be driving. Hopefully, when he goes to court, they’ll confiscate his license or, at the very least, his sat-nav.
