Use Good Sense When Following GPS Commands

While GPS and map apps are often thought of as life-savers by directionally challenged people, they should not substitute for good directional – or, at least, common – sense.

Take a look at this “CBS This Morning” video showing footage of a car whose driver followed her Google Maps directions to the letter, even when signage and other cues strongly indicated otherwise.

This true story of an Oregon driver is followed by a similar, fictional, GPS-inspired scene from the TV show, “The Office”.

If you’re directionally challenged you need the award-winning book, Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around, by Janet R. Carpman and Myron A. Grant. www.directionalsense.com
