A Utah woman is suing Google after Google Maps on her BlackBerry allegedly gave her walking directions that led her to a highway where she was struck by a car, CNN reports.

Lauren Rosenberg of Park City is suing the web giant for $100,000 because she claims she was led onto a rural highway with no sidewalks. She's also suing the driver.

"Defendant Google, through its "Google Maps" service provided Plaintiff Lauren Rosenberg with walking directions that led her out onto Deer Valley Drive, a.k.a. State Route 224, a rural highway with no sidewalks, and a roadway that exhibits motor vehicles travelling at high speeds, that is not reasonably safe for pedestrians," reads court documents.

"As a direct and proximate cause of Defendant Google's careless, reckless, and negligent providing of unsafe directions, Plaintiff Lauren Rosenberg was led onto a dangerous highway, and was thereby stricken by a motor vehicle." None of the allegations have been proven in court.

When you do a walking-directions search via Google Maps on laptop or desktop computer, you get the following warning: "Walking directions are in beta.

Use caution ­ This route may be missing sidewalks or pedestrian paths." However, due to the size of the screen, the same warning doesn't appear on the mobile platform.

Seth Weintraub of CNN's Fortune Tech poked fun at the women in a blog post.

"This reminds me of something my parents used to tell me when I was younger and blamed someone else for my mistakes. They'd say, 'If Google told you to jump off a cliff, would you do it?'" he wrote. "Except I was a kid. And if I was told to walk onto a highway, I would have passed."

Society is going the way of the crapper because some ####### wants to sue for stupidity and some ####### thinks it is worth printing a story about.

You do realise, Paul that the media is manipulative and things like this are designed specifically to validate views you already hold, even though the story itself is proof of nothing.
