I have never used GPS in my life.
Put too much faith in technology and you may wind up in Croatia. A 67-year-old woman from Belgium learned that the hard way after she followed (faulty) directions from her GPS device.
The woman only wanted to go about 90 miles from her hometown of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium, to pick up a friend at the Brussels train station. Her GPS device sent her about 900 miles to the south before (during the second day of driving) she realized that something was amiss. It’s unclear if she entered the address incorrectly or if the GPS was faulty.- The Slideshow
What about border crossings. To go from Belgium to Croatia you would have to cross borders at least 3 times. Didn’t she have to stop? I traveled by car from Zakopane Poland to Prague Czech Republic in 2000 and had to stop at both the Poland-Slovakia border and the Slovakia-Czech border. Has the EU changed the continent that much?
To be honest, this story seems a little hard to believe. Hat tip- Dr. Taylor at OTB.
