Memo to Sat Nav makers…

Posted in Musing by Ian Cundell on 26 March, 2005

…and indeed the makers of other route finding aids such as this: when giving directions to people going to St Albans don’t sent them through the middle of the City. A bod from the council once told me that 75% of traffic on St Peters Street is through traffic.
It’s bad enough having so many people who are lost – or who just don’t care – coming through, but to have your software forcing people in is a bit much.
This isn’t London – we have a finite number of streets. Teach your software to use them better.
