    Lauren Rosenberg sues Google, blames faulty Google Maps

    Turn right at the next intersection and continue for 3 miles. Oh, and watch out for any oncoming traffic.

    A California woman is suing Google after she was hit by a car while following directions provided by Google Maps on her cell phone, according to AOL News.

    Lauren Rosenberg says that the Google Maps BlackBerry application told her to use Deer Valley Drive -- a highway also called Utah State Route 224 -- to walk from one Park City address to another.

    However, the directions did not tell her that there were no sidewalks along Deer Valley Drive, which, Rosenberg alleges, led to her being struck by traffic.

    "As a direct and proximate cause of Defendant Google's careless, reckless and negligent providing of unsafe directions, Plaintiff Lauren Rosenberg was led onto a dangerous highway, and was thereby stricken by a motor vehicle, causing her to suffer severe permanent physical, emotional and mental injuries," according to the complaint filed in Park County district court.

    The saddest part is that she'll probably win huge $$

    So, when she saw there was no sidewalk and kept walking anyway, that's supposed to be Google's fault?

    ****ing retarded. This lawsuit is the epitome of how people in this country absolutely refuse to take responsibility for themselves and their own actions. Every goddamn thing must be someone elses fault because god ****ing forbid someone actually use their own goddamn brain to think FOR THEMSELVES.

    Jesus.

    She should win...and be given a few hundred thousand...and then be forced to live in a cardbox somewhere and be spoonfed jello and never be allowed near a light switch or candles because obviously she is too stupid to operate such things safely. We must protect her from her own dumb ass.

    ****ing Californians...

    Yeah...This is a dumb b!tch and her suit will be dismissed. It makes the news and it costs a little time and money - but she'll spend more than anyone else will when it gets dismissed.

    Of course this happened in Deer Valley, where people have more money than brains. I've actually been on this road. She was probably walking right on the road, there is a cliff on one side of it with a pretty steep drop, and the other side is clean up against the side of the mountain. What a maroon.

    This is what happens when your phone is smarter than you are.

    FWIW, I have this app on my droid. It's designed for driving directions, not walking directions. It never mentions sidewalks or pedestrian issues.
