Some things in life shouldn’t be taken seriously — including GPS directions.

A Pennsylvania woman ended up in a bind when she followed the instructions on her GPS and drove on the railroad tracks, according to the City of Duquense Police Department.




The middle-aged driver, who was about 40 miles away from her hometown in Sewickley, told police her GPS advised her to go that route.

Police received a call about a vehicle on the tracks in Duquesne, Pa., at around 10 p.m. on Nov. 21 — the day before Thanksgiving.

“The female was 100% sober and had no medical conditions affecting her decision-making,” police wrote to Facebook.

They also shared a photo of the woman’s white car on the tracks.

Authorities confirmed the tracks are parallel to the road the woman was driving on — leading social media users to believe maybe she wasn’t paying attention to driving, leading her to veer off the road.

After the incident, she was cited for careless driving and her car was towed.
