Mother Nature and technology leave B.C. motorists frustrated

Blame it on the rain… and Google Maps.

Drivers returning to the Lower Mainland from the B.C. Interior Monday were faced with more congestion on the Coquihalla Highway due to an apparent online mapping glitch.

Due to back-ups and delays at Larson Hill, drivers were informed by Google Maps they needed to take a detour. Unfortunately, the online navigation tool took some motorists to a logging road that had been washed out, forcing hundreds drivers to turn around and come all the way back to the busy highway.
