Home Asides Sometimes, it’s not the GPS’ fault

Sometimes, it’s not the GPS’ fault

by Benjamin Kabak

On Monday night, a driver in Westchester ended up driving on the Metro-North tracks. His car got stuck, and he had to get out as a train barreled down on him. After the inevitable collision and once the police arrived on the scene, Jose Silva said that “he did what he was told” by his car’s GPS. At some point, wouldn’t it make sense not to turn right on railroad tracks no matter what the automated voice inside one’s car is saying? Personality responsibility should trump technology.
