GPS apps may have made it easier for people to find places but they’re not completely error-free. In fact, in Philadelphia, there have been countless reports of people getting into accidents because they used a GPS app. The two seem unlikely to add up together but car accidents from GPS accidents are not unusual. Many people have found themselves winding up on busy roads, large bodies of water or even running into a tree when they follow the app blindly.
This is not to say that GPS apps aren’t useful. It’s following blindly what the apps say that put people into danger. Accidents happen when drivers pay more attention to the detailed instructions of the GPS voice than the road warning signs or traffic lights.
