Driver says GPS made him turn onto train tracks in Everett; at least he was able to escape before train destroyed his car

WBZ reports the man didn't just turn onto the train tracks:

The man drove down the tracks for a distance before coming to a stop nowhere near a crossing.

Like the jackass who got stuck on a rail trail in Northampton last week after mowing down some bollards.

When your GPS says "turn right" it usually means "look for a goddamn roadway on your right".

When the GPS says turn right, you turn right….into a pond.

I was going to say at least it wasn't a pond or lake but then I realized this is much worse. Will listening to GPS driving instructions and causing a hazard ever be a traffic violation?

You are still responsible for operating your motor vehicle safely. Turning onto train tracks is not safely operating whether your GPS or your mother-in-law told you to do it.

No, seriously, the lack of accountability and personal responsibility among Massachusetts residents has reached satire levels.

relying on personal responsibility is a bad idea and we should instead be doing more with our infrastructure, regulations, and enforcement...
