Do you always do what your GPS says? If it told you to make a left turn, but there were stop signs and clearly visible“Wrong Way” signs posted, would you still make that left?

For a driver from Richmond, this miscommunication from her GPS system caused a fatal accident that left a 23-year-old Chase City man dead. She claims that the GPS told her to make a left, which turned out to be a one-way street. Apparently, she’s not the only one who has made this mistake. Troopers and people living in the area have witnessed drivers going the wrong way in that same area just off Route 460.

So, who is responsible for this accident? Is it the GPS company or the driver? That would probably be up to a judge to decide.

Keep in mind that you cannot always depend on a GPS system to provide accurate directions as sometimes the software is not up-to-date. Although you can usually trust what the system does tell you, you should always be aware of road signage and be more alert in areas that are not familiar to you.
