Atlanta roads can be confusing to new drivers, but that doesn’t mean that they can get away with causing accidents. A man from South Carolina is now facing involuntary manslaughter and other charges after his GPS told him he missed a turn.
He was driving around the airport and missed a turn, so he tried to do a quick U-turn on Sullivan to make his route. That put him right in the path of a motorcyclist. The impact killed the motorcyclist. Police have taken the opportunity to inform people not to use electronic devices while driving. Instead, pull over to the side of the road to calibrate your GPS instead of doing it while driving. It could save a life.
