Do Sat-Navs Exploit Rat Runs

This afternoon my son brought me home in his car through North-East London.

  • He was using a sat-nav and it was a mazy drive down a succession of narrow residential roads usually with cars parked on both sides.
  • I’m sure we did two totally unnecessary loops.
  • He also approached my house the wrong way, so he did two unnecessary right turns.

I’ve never used a sat-nav and doubt I ever will, as I don’t drive any more and when I’m walking, I prefer to use a proper map, like there are on most London bus stops or train stations.

I wonder how many acxcidents and traffic jams are caused by sat-navs.
