Woman Puts Her Trust In GPS; Drives 900 Miles In The Wrong Direction

Today in “stories that easily could have been about me,” a Belgian woman set out to pick up a friend at a train station 90 miles from her home, and, after typing the address into her GPS device, proceeded to follow the turn-by-turn directions 900 miles in the wrong direction. Sabine Moreau, 67, drove for two full days, sleeping on the side of the road, filling her gas tank twice, and even getting in a minor car accident, but apparently none of this made her question the validity of her route. In fact, Moreau didn’t notice anything was amiss until she got to Croatia. “I was distracted, so I kept driving,” she told El Mundo. “I saw all kinds of traffic signs, first in French, then German and finally in Croatian, but I kept driving because I was distracted. Suddenly I appeared in Zagreb and I realized I wasn’t in Belgium anymore.”
