GPS causes accident in France
For all of us who need a good laugh on a Friday afternoon: A 78-year-old man traveling on an 80 mph highway in France caused a traffic accident when he listened to his GPS system's directions to "make a U-turn immediately." The man was only looking for a hotel after all and must have really thought the GPS knew its stuff. More surprising are the local police who say this isn't the first time a GPS system has caused a driver to go bad. Although most of us would argue the GPS really can't be at fault.
