Here’s further proof that the computers are out to get us and in the end, they just might win: three students follow their GPS… into the bay.
Oh no! It looks like three tourists forgot to fulfill their recommended daily allowance of common sense. Under the illusion their Hyundai Getz hire car was Jeremy’s Toybota, they thought that they could drive across 15 kilometres of Australian water… because their sat nav told them to.
"it told us we could drive down there" said Yuzu Noda, captain of HMS Hyundai Getz, "It kept saying it would navigate us to a road. We got stuck … there’s lots of mud."
The three students were trying to get to North Stradbroke Island in Australia - which is only accessible by ferry. The ferry costs $67.50, the insurance excess to pay for the damages is $1500.
