The rise of the GPS has reduced the time we spend asking people how to find that great restaurant recommended by our friend. Even though it may have made us less sociable, it has made our driving much more efficient. Or so we thought until we found a poll conducted by MyTaxi that was published in Forbes.
GPS systems are not infallible and, according to the study, errors cost the average driver a total of 29 hours per year. In other words—unless we’re mistaken—you could travel the length of the Iberian Peninsula and back and would still have seven hours left to stop off for lunch and the longest siesta of your life.
Is that possible? Yes, but you’d need to have plenty time on your hands and not lose any from troublesome GPS errors.
