    No, it's not April 1st come early. If not a prosecution, how about taking her license off her for a while and maybe upping her meds. She could have killed herself never mind others had a train come along. I wonder if she indicated.....:rolleyes:

    As for the part I bolded, well, we all do stupid things on the roads occasionally for sure, but this....? If someone will do something this stupid at the behest of sat nav would you think they should still be allowed to continue to drive on the public roads without any penalty?

    If this isn't driving without due care and attention I don't know what is. Suspension and a retest would seem a good idea at least.

    I must find out what make of sat nav it was so I can never, ever, ever buy one.:eek:

    It probably wasn't just the SatNav. Undoubtedly the secret signals those satellites beam down to control us played a significant part in this woman's blunder, and the police don't want to publicize it. But they're too late - we already know all about it.

    However to block those signals it's not sufficient to simply line one's hat with tin foil. Au contraire! The foil has to be grounded to work properly.
