Lady follows Google Maps directions, is hit by car, sues Google

Somewhere in Utah, there’s a lawyer rubbing his hands together with glee. But I think he and his client will soon find out that you waste the court’s time at your own peril. Lauren Rosenberg, while traveling about a small town in Utah, got directions from Google Maps on her Blackberry, and followed them to the letter. Even when they told her to walk down Utah State Route 224, a highway with no sidewalk. Unsurprisingly, she was soon hit by a car, and is now suing both driver and Google.

Mother of God. All I can say is that I hope justice will be served, and predatory legal maneuvers punished. I’d like to thank Laura for giving me a chance to use the above graphic again, though.
