GPS Sends another Driver onto Train Tracks of Doom
In this article it tells us about how a man trusted his GPS so much. A named Jose Silvia recently had an accident when his GPS instructed him to make a right turn which made him turn up on a railway track. The man was with his son and nephew. When he turned up on the railways his son pointed out that they were on the railway. The three got out of the car to move it. They called the police to notify the incident and to have officials notify any incoming trains to stop. However six to seven minutes later a train struck the car. The man had got tickets for not obeying signs and driving on the railroad track even if his GPS had instructed him to end up there. This is not the first incident to happen. There has been so many incidents which caused a women being killed in 1996.
Many people nowadays use a GPS to help them find their ways when they get lost or need to find a local restaurant o pharmacy for example. GPSs help make our lives. A GPS can help blind people which are on foot find their way. They help hospitals, police stations, and fire departments locate a person when they call during an emergency call. This makes it faster for them to reach the location. However they can be very dangerous to us especially if they give us wrong directions!
