GPS error: Woman drives 900 miles, not 90 miles
A 67-year-old woman drove for 900 miles over the course of two days because of a GPS error, despite her destination only being 90 miles away.
According to Gizmodo, the woman, 67-year-old Sabine Moreau, started her journey in her home town of Hainault Erquelinnes, Belgium.
Moreau wanted to pick up a friend 93 miles north of her home. However, when she turned on her GPS, the sweet voice on her turn-by-turn device directed her to drive south to Zagreb, in Croatia.
Instead of a two hour trip in the car, she traveled 900 miles across Europe.
During the trip, she reportedly stopped for gas twice, slept for a few hours on the side of the road and was involved in a minor accident.
Moreau claims she was “distracted” and said:
“I was distracted, so I kept driving. 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.”
