Yeah just what we need, emergency services rushing to help drunken country people stuck in ditches. You know thats who is going to use this most, dumb drunken country people.


I doubt that.

You can't save time only spend it.

Surely these GPS devices will have to be built along the lines of aircraft black boxes, so they still work after a bad accident?

Bet half the time they turn up will be some country guy who drove into a field to try catch sheep, and they will catch him in the act.

 

Every bank holiday weekend its the same, drunken country people involved in fatal accidents outside the city.

Not necessarily mate, there is road by me which consists of five staights only seperated by roundabouts. Each straight is about mile long or so and people use it as drag strip, so dumb wreckless (ironic wording) idiots cause crashes as well.

 

An elderly group were caught up in such an accident and didn't make it through. :smileysad:

But did the police turn up in an orderly time? I bet they did, cause thats how city folk roll, and you and others have already said its only of real benefit in isolated areas.

 

We all know what goes on in isolated areas, drunk driving, zoophilia, and incest.

 

Also, what if youre on a horse?

Possibly but not necessarily and depends on where it is positioned.
