"At the next boulder, turn right off cliff"

Technology is wonderful. Technology is also made or, in this case, programmed by people.
Drivers using GPS navigation in the English village of Crackpot (killer name for a town, BTW) are often being guided by such devices to the top of a 30-metre (over 98 feet) cliff. The directional glitch forces drivers of everything from cars to buses to big trucks to turn around perilously close to the cliff's edge. Predictably, though, sometimes the vehicle gets stuck. Says Carol Porter, who farms in Crackpot, "When they get grounded on the small boulders, we're having to go up there in the tractor and pull them out."
