    [h=3]Woman Drives Extra 850 Miles, and Two Extra Days, and Through Three Extra Countries, Because Her GPS Told Her To[/h]
    A 67-year-old Belgian woman mistakenly drove 900 miles from her home in Begium to Zagreb, Croatia, because her TomTom GPS instructed her to do so.

    Sabine Moreau wanted to pick up a friend from a train station in Brussels, 47 miles from her home in Solre-sur-Sambre, the Daily Mail reported. But her GPS gave her the wrong directions, which she followed.


    On her way to Croatia, Moreau passed through Germany, Austria, and Slovenia. After two days of driving, she finally stopped and called home.


    Meanwhile, Belgian police were about to launch a search for Moreau when her son found out where she was, according to the Mail.


    It is unclear if she entered the wrong destination into the GPS, or if the device malfunctioned.

    If it were Danica Patrick, she would have wrecked along the way and never would have made it to Croatia.

    I don't know about you, but when I set out to make a trip that should take less than an hour, I usually check a map after the first 24 hours of wandering.

    Danica Wreckit would have crashed 5 times and destroyed her GPS unit twice. That in the first 100 miles.

    Agreed, a lot of people are too lazy or stupid to read a map and rely on those things way too much. There's a road near one of our local ski areas that's closed during the winter because it's extremely steep and difficult to maintain. That info wasn't included on GPS systems, so people were always trying to use it. One idiot even drove around the Road Closed signs and wrecked his brand new Jaguar. Of course, he blamed it on GPS.
