A woman in Europe drove 900 miles the wrong way because her GPS didn’t guide her properly.

Perhaps we’re all a little too dependent on technology, but it’s getting beyond ridiculous when a fairly short drive turns into an inter-country trip and the driver doesn’t get a clue until she starts seeing signs in different languages.


Discovery reported that the driver, Sabine Moreau, even stopped twice for gas, slept on the side of the road — and “suffered a minor car accident” along the way. Moreau also told El Mundo that she just wasn’t paying attention:

I was distracted, so I kept driving. I saw all kinds of traffic signs, first in French, then German and finally in Croatian, but I kept driving because I was distracted. Suddenly I appeared in Zagreb and I realized I wasn’t in Belgium anymore.
