Here's a good example why you can't blindly follow Google Maps
Many of us rely on Google Maps every day to help us get safely from point "A" to point "B." But sometimes putting blind faith in technology can backfire. Take the ordeal that nearly 100 Colorado drivers found themselves living through this past Sunday when they tried to drive around a traffic jam. According to CNN and Denver 7, an accident on a road leading to Denver International Airport led drivers to follow a detour suggested by the Google Maps app. The app said that the detour would get drivers to the airport in just 23 minutes, half the time it would take them following the usual directions.
