GPS havoc on French motorway

December 06, 2004 @ 09:54 By: gordon Category: Seen on the 'net

AP reports that an elderly driver in France followed his onboard GPS’ instructions to a T when it told him “make a U-turn immediately”. Unfortunately, he was travelling on a 130km/h highway at the time and collided with another vehicle. Fortunately, however, no one was injured.
The scary bit is that this isn’t the first time something like this has happened.
