Published:

A truck driver demonstrates the reason no driver should ever blindly follow a GPS in this informative clip. 

“I have a Germin Diesel GPS, it’s meant for truck drivers,” begins Tik Toking trucker @whataberger. 

“I have to enter my weight and length whenever I’m planning a route.And right now, it’s telling me to turn right,” he continues, panning the camera to a clearly marked ‘No trucks’ sign. In fact, the designated truck route is in the opposite direction. 

“That’s why you can’t trust these GPS, even if they’re meant for a truck driver,” he concludes. 

If you’re an experienced driver, this situation is already all-too-familiar. Check out the clip below to see it for yourself.
