Villagers in rural Crackpot, England (no, really, it's actually called Crackpot are worried that satellite navigation systems could soon lead travellers looking for a route between Swaledale and Wensleydale, North Yorkshire to their doom. The road in question is a nonpaved strip that's reportedly barely navigable by 4x4s, and locals have been pulling cars out of the mud at a rate of one or so a week. Of greater concern is the 100-foot drop off to one side, which residents are worried could claim a life during a botched three-point turn attempt.
