    There was a case some years ago when BMW first had an in-car GPS
    system. A driver in his new BMW was driving up a road next to the
    Rhine when his in-car GPS system instructed him to turn left -
    despite the fact that the bridge that was supposed to be there,
    obviously wasn't..... He wasn't drunk, just a good German who did
    what he was told.
