Last month, a motorist had to abandon ship seconds before his vehicle got stuck and clobbered by an oncoming train on the Metro-North Railroad tracks in Bedford Hills, N.Y.
Jose Silva drove himself into such peril on purpose. The reason?
His global positioning system told him to go that way.
Oh, that’s a good one. Try that one the next time you’re involved in a vehicular mishap, especially if it’s your fault: “My GPS made me do it, Mr. Officer. Sir.”
