You can’t always trust those things, you know.
67-Year-old Sabine Moreau of Belgium left her home to pick up a friend at a train station in Brussels, North of her home by about 61km. The trip should have taken her maybe an hour, but a GPS error caused her to take a last minute wrong turn.
Instead of travelling North to the train station, Sabine Moreau drove South East, for about 1500km! She drove through France, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia. In fact, she even passed multiple road signs in different languages. She even made a rest stop to sleep, and stopped at numerous gas stations to refuel. In total, she was travelling for more than 60 HOURS.
You think she would have realized something was wrong after driving for two hours and not seeing signs of a train station.
“I didn’t really notice anything was wrong until I suddenly arrived in Zagreb, and realized I was no longer in Belgium,” Sabine told a reporter, “I didn’t ask myself any questions. I was just distracted so I kept my foot down.”
She was gone from home for so long that her son was worried and filed a missing persons report. Luckily, Sabine called home not long after and confessed to her son that she may have relied on her GPS a little too much.
