Sat nav chaos
This report contains the serious warning that ‘People are becoming too reliant on technology’ – but also points out the problems with the slow updating of sat nav systems. I feel sorry for those in the honeypot villages of Derbyshire who are being disturbed by heavy traffic. But it takes a local councillor to come up with a stirring public announcement like: ‘We urge people to follow diversion signs rather than their satellite navigation facilities.’ A manifesto in the making, I reckon.
