It seems a lot of people have trouble taking responsibility for being dumb.
I hope he is not the person who works on the famous
"Swiss Watch" everybode always talks about.
... the stupid blame someone or something else for their mistake not realizing that it makes them look even more stupid than the original mistake does.
Idiot. Shame that the guard rail held.
How stupid can people be. He got what he deserved. And I am sure it cost him a pretty penny to get air lifted out.
As the old saying goes: "You Can't Fix Stupid..!!"
Wonder if they sent him bill for the air-lift?
I remember when i got my first GPS, a 260W. I had Topo Maps also. I go fly fishing up in the interior in the Summer. Not knowing it made a difference, i had all three ticked in Map info. 2d 3d and Topo. In avoidance's i had only Ferries ticked off. Off we went with 24 foot trailer in tow. All was fine until we needed to get off road and start heading up the mountain towards the Lake. It takes me on a dirt road which is not unusual. What was unusual is that it was single lane only. 1/4 of a mile in i realized i was on a farm road. Tractor or 4 wheeler only type of road. Luckily i was able to turn around. Took me about 30 minutes to figure out why my garmin took me off road like that. At that time I really didn't understand how these things worked (not that it's too much better now)...lol. I trusted my Gps and that's why i followed its direction. It didn't steer my wrong. It was me that didn't tick the "unpaved roads" Route Preference was also set wrong. It can happen. Hopefully one doesn't trust ones Gps unconditionally and if your on the wrong road, you catch on sooner rather than later.
That and the car that nearly drove off a cliff and blamed on the GPS....
Where's common sense anymore these days?....
doesn't seem to be an acceptable excuse in court, either . . .
This reminds me of the old story about the driver who thought "cruise control" would stear his car for him, and hit a tree.
even without a GPS to blame.
He's just a sheep. Willing to follow whatever a GPS will tell him. Imagine what would happen if some manipulative person dished out orders....
be about one taco short of a combination plate!
In Davenport IA, bridges 2, trucks 0, and that was just last week. Drivers said GPS was at fault.
The local rescue services "kindly airlifted him out"?? I hate to think what the bill would be for these kind services would be in the US.
I would hate to see what he does if he drives through a construction zone using a GPS.
In his defense, there is a "road" here that isn't much better than the goat trail he drove down. But it is marked as a road, and only has 2 houses on it. It is just wide enough for 1 vehicle, and all gravel, winding up a mountain side.
Another case of technology trumping common sense.
