Truckers Blamed for bad GPS

An article you may find interesting here ...from the story:

"Gov. David Paterson on Wednesday proposed penalties including jail time and confiscation of trucks to come down on drivers who use GPS — global positioning systems — to take more hazardous routes and end up striking bridges."

Great, the minute the public relies on old military technology to get some work done they find out the devices are just more consumer trash. Pay your protection money for the software upgrade or your GPS can take you way off the direct route - I know this because I just went hours out of my way on a trip to NC - GPS kept pointing the wrong way. We figured it out - on the way back since it was our first time taking the new route. But crashing into bridges?
