“Recalculating”

If you have ever seen the insurance commercial where “Mr. Mayhem” pretends to a confused GPS system, this might be for you. I always figured GPS systems were not 100% accurate, but it really never dawned on me how far reaching the impact of that could be. Well according to a Transport Topics article they are not designed for trucks to use either, at least not the version that was originally designed for cars. The GPS versions that were designed for cars do not calculate (or recalculate) the height of your truck and the height of the bridges around you.

STRAPS 8577

Thus you have a rash of bridge collisions by truck drivers who faithfully listened to their GPS. In fact the article I pulled this from said the vast majority of bridge collisions in New York State were caused by truckers using a GPS system designed for cars. I guess there was truth to that commercial after all about mayhem being in the GPS. http://www.ttnews.com/articles/basetemplate.aspx?storyid=31461&t=FMCSA-WarnsTruckers-to-Use-Truck-Specific-GPS 9
