Google Maps has long been a familiar directions app for many around the world. However, there have been many times users fall into the situation when they believe in Google's directions application. Not only are they lost, many people who are out of the way, isolated, or stuck in a car cannot find a way back and have to call for emergency help.
Recently, Google Maps continued to be involved in the scandal of crying badly when it was banned from circulating on the territory of the city of Sardinia (in Italy). Explaining this decision, the mayor of the town said that too many tourists in Sardinia got lost due to listening to the directions of Google Map.
In the past year alone, the town has recorded 144 cases of tourists getting lost using Google's directions app. Most tourists get lost when following the directions of Google Map to the white sand beach on the East Coast but in fact they are only going on remote roads, it is difficult to move and stuck to return. Find your way back.
Currently, many areas in Sardinia have been installed new traffic signs with the "Do not listen to what Google Maps tells you" recommendation. Even the local government is planning a campaign to propagate and share information on social networks to get more people to know.
Local authorities have also sent a notice of this to Google and are awaiting a resolution.
