    Yea, he did have a medical condition: His head was shoved so far up his Rectum! Dont know about you but to me that constitutes a medical condition. I have had a GPS system in my Suburban for years. I use it ALL THE TIME. It has never told me what to do

    I wonder if he was on 794 coming north and missed the turn in the construction zone. He was probably looking for a place to turn around.

    His CDL should immediately be revoked. And i am usually one to let cooler heads prevail.

    But I just cannot find an excuse for it. None.

    If you follow the GPS blindly, you will land up into something like this. I wonder how the driver manage over the first of the two foot bridges. Didn’t he realize there was something wrong on the road suddenly? It’s fortunate no one was injured and that the driver didn’t go off the bridge. Technology can be so cruel at times.

    Aw, I don't know Mate. Technology has driven and delivered US to where WE are and it will drive and deliver US to our final destinations, therefore Technology is simply another Tool despite the incompetent or simple minds using said Technology.

    P.T.L. now has a new moniker:
    Park
    Travel
    Lake

    ~ ~ your mileage may vary. Talk to your doctor to see if PTL is right for you. Only THE SHADOW knows our fate.~ ~
    CHEERS!!
