    That ain't just Swift drivers fouling up like that anymore. It's drivers of all companies following their navigation device. A 10 dollar atlas should decrease a lot of those incidents.

    or an eyeball....

    just looking at that curve and bridge, id think anyone thats smarter than a fifth grader could judge that that trailer aint gonna fit.
    the super scary part is that the driver just drove right off the ledge instead of creeping along and watching or getting out and looking.

    had a driver in my residential neighborhood , sitting at the four way stop and I asked if he needed help and he said his GPS told him to take this road.
    and he asked if I knew how to get out. at least i think thats what he asked, he was a forigner and his english wasnt so good.

    "uh,im not sure how you made it this far, but it gets curvier, so yeah, if you can get it turned around you better go back out the way you came in.

    You know, I like technology just as much as the next guy, but the computer didn't come equipped with that common sense part. I'll second that eyeball part too. My eyeballs sometimes causes me to not take certain parking spots at the truck stop. Hell sometimes they cause me not turn into certain truck stops lol

    Love how NW Pelton Dam Rd. appears to be a GIANT U-TURN, and if it's really a dam road, bet it wooda bin interestink with a higher potential fall to successfully leave the road behind.

    At least the "driver" wasn't on some other classy "roads" which were actually TRAILS.
