GPS: When common sense flees

Sibling site Engadget reports what may be a trend among GPS-using drivers at least in the U.K.
According to The Times, drivers going through the village of Luckington have driven right into the river by following their navigation systems. This is despite all the warning signs that the bridge has been closed. The village has had to tow two cars a day on average. And we at Autoblog reported on the village of Crackpot where following GPS has nearly lead several drivers over a cliff.

Maybe it's time to add 'Using navigation systems' to Driver's Ed?
