Google Lawsuit Over Bad Directions
I had to check the date to make sure it wasn’t April Fool’s.
Via PC World, well…let them tell you.
Rosenberg, a Los Angeles California native, is suing Google because Google Maps issued directions that told her to walk down a rural highway. She started walking down the highway--which had no sidewalk or pedestrian paths--and was struck by a car. She is suing Google for her medical expenses ($100,000), as well as punitive damages.
There’s not much more to say–she started walking down the middle of a highway, and a car hit her. Who wouldn’t have seen that one coming?
