GPS routed bus under bridge, company says

The driver of the bus carrying the Garfield High School girls softball team that hit a brick and concrete footbridge was using a GPS navigation system that routed the tall bus under the 9-foot bridge, the charter company's president said Thursday.

Steve Abegg, president of Journey Lines in Lynnwood, said the off-the-shelf navigation unit had settings for car, motorcycle, bus or truck.

Although the unit was set for a bus, it chose a route through the Washington Park Arboretum that did not provide enough clearance for the nearly 12-foot-high vehicle, Abegg said. The driver told police he did not see the flashing lights or yellow sign posting the bridge height. ...

Why Neil, I would suppose in a lot of states this would happen! Especially if the weigh stations are open on the main highways. I would also add there are quite a few teen-age farm kids driving semis hauling cattle, at least in Nebraska, and I would suppose sometimes they will end up on unpaved roads. Apparently, in Great Britain, lorry drivers are exploring all sorts of roads for all sorts of reasons.

"keeping to paved highways would solve many a trucker's problem."

Huh? I didn't know buses & semis habitually used unimproved roads. Must be a Nebraska thing.

Neil, I would hope that they would take various aspects of a route into account, but keeping to paved highways would solve many a trucker's problem.

Even my gpses warn that you are responsible for what happens when you use them, and you are. Garmin isn't perfect, theirs just might better than some others.

It is good that mine is so small that its size doesn't encourage me to look at it, and just listen to it, and so I usually have my eyes on the road.

Undoubtedly, but are you implying that any can warn of low clearances on a route?
Apparently the GPS wrongly assumes that bus drivers may assume that GPS is driving the bus as well.

Garmins, do have a setting that will show only paved roads, at least for the U.S.A., anyway.

Right on, Maria. And it is only the beginning and this is minor compared to other reports. Trusting a robot more than your instinct!

Was the guy actually driving? I mean how could he not see the big yellow sign that says "9' Clearance!" and the flashing lights?! Is he just staring at his GPS screen like a zombie?

Stupid driving at it's finest. If it were my bus line I'd be firing him.

It just shows you how man is at the mercy of technology. All these devices are making life easier but at the expense of dumbing us down to the point of eliminating our common sense and the need to reason for ourselves. Society is dumbing down while knowledge is indcreasing (just like it's prophesized in Daniel).
