Example #4,239 why sat-nav isn't always to be trusted
A driver in England has once again followed the instructions from his car's GPS system as if he were Abraham heeding instructions from The Almighty. Headed to a friend's house, the driver was told by his GPS to go up a steep walking path, and he did so. Luckily the path was lined by a fence, because when the driver crested a hill, he slid down the path and into the fence, which stopped him from going over a 100-foot cliff.
Fortunately, he was unhurt, although charged with careless driving. Never forget: trust your good sense before you trust your satnav...
