Really - the GPS said turn onto railroad tracks so she did?? I do not think the warning would have helped her here - It doesn't say "do not use this product while driving with your head up your ass"!

I have read many articles about how GPS in vehicles was making humans "dumber".
Most of the articles hit on the idea that we don't use our brains as much when we have a device telling us where to go.

Looks like they have a case study now.
