German Driver Crashes Following GPS

Motorist crashes on satellite navigation command

The motorist was heading into the north German city of Bremen "when the friendly voice from his satnav told him to turn left," a spokesman said.

"He did what he was ordered to do and turned his Audi left up over the curb and onto the track of a local streetcar line. He tried to back up off the track but got completely stuck."

I just heard the phrase "He did what he was ordered to" and thought "Yep. German."
