20-year-old accused of relying too much on the GPS

On Monday at 09.25 the police were alerted that a 20-year-old man was on his way over the Great Belt Bridge on a moped. The trip went towards Zealand.

A 20-year-old man explained to the police that he was just following the GPS when he was on his way across the Great Belt from the Funen side on Monday morning.

The island's police circle, however, stopped the man on Sprogo.

The man, who turned out to be 20 years old, comes from abroad. He said he was on his way from Germany to Sweden. But in Denmark, the obviously slow journey stopped.

This is what the South Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police write in the police report .

The police agreed with a trip away from the bridge and a fine of 1,000 kroner for violating the traffic law, before the 20-year-old – with the moped – was transported safely to Zealand.

It is far from the first time that a GPS has led astray. Even drivers can rely a little too much and a little too blindly on technology.

This happened, for example, to a Toyota owner who claimed to have simply followed his GPS. So directly into the water, where the car was helplessly stuck. However, with the engine running.

However, neither the 20-year-old on the moped nor the Toyota owner are the only ones who have gone astray because of a little too much faith in the technique. Last year we at Boosted could tell about a driver who died because he trusted his GPS. Read more about that case here .
