Here is what happens when great human innovation without human intervention

I rely on GPS a lot when I am travelling around, but I do homework before I leave. At least I do observation as I drive. Sometimes I will get off the vehicle in order to make sure if I am in a right way.

A car was left teetering on a cliff edge after the driver followed sat nav directions down a Pennine footpath.

Robert Jones continued to follow the instructions when they told him the narrow, steep path he was driving on in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, was a road.

Mr Jones, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, only stopped when his BMW hit a fence above Gauxholme railway bridge on Sunday morning.

Police have charged Mr Jones with driving without due care and attention.

The 43-year-old, who works as a driver, said he relied on his sat nav for his job.

He described Sunday’s incident, during a visit to friends in Todmorden, as “a nightmare”.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers received a call at 11.18am on Sunday March 22 reporting that a BMW was hanging off the edge of a cliff off Bacup Road.

“The driver was a 43-year-old man from Doncaster. He has been summonsed to court for driving without due care and attention.”
