Police in Colac are saying that Google Maps is sending drivers down a road called Wild Dog Road which is a one-way road not made for heavy traffic. Trucks, buses and tourist driven vehicles are being sent on the road by Google Maps, creating a possibly dangerous situation. Google has responded by saying that drivers are being,sent down Wild Dog Road only if their destination lies on the road. If the destination is nearby, Google says that Maps sends them down either Skenes Creek Road or Forrest Apollo Road, avoiding Wild Dog Road.
Who would have thought that using a mapping application could be so dangerous.
