Case in Point: Driver Obeys Directions, Gets Car Hit by Train

And this is exactly the sort of thing I was on about before: trusting her GPS navigation system implicitly, a British woman drives onto the tracks; while closing the level crossing gate (first clue) behind her, her car is hit by a train. To be fair, this was at night, but dashboard navigation is never a substitute for your own eyes. I am surprised at how many stories like this are coming out of the UK. Via Boing Boing.
