GPS Mistake Leads Car to Tram Rails in Prague’s Hlubočepy district

On the evening of Wednesday, December 6, an unusual incident took place in Prague’s Hlubočepy district.

Placing excessive trust in their navigation system, a driver followed its guidance onto the tram tracks.

The peculiar event happened around 18:20 on Hlubočepská Street, resulting in no injuries but causing damage to the vehicle and the separation barrier.

Law enforcement promptly arrived at the scene and conducted an alcohol test on the foreign driver, yielding a negative result.

As a consequence of the incident, tram services on the street were halted for approximately an hour.

Similarly, curious accidents related to navigation are far from unique.

Earlier this year, a young female driver, also relying on navigation, followed the instruction to turn, only to find herself on the tram tracks.

Likewise, a Polish lorry driver, who failed to notice that the road had been diverted for reconstruction, ended up overturned behind the barriers in a dug-up road due to confusion caused by the navigation instructions.
