Robert Jones is the guy who followed his navigation device in his BMW down a path so narrow that only folks walking their dogs used it. The real problem wasn't that he followed the nav down a walking path, but the path ended in a cliff.

The only thing that kept the man from falling off the cliff was a sturdy wire fence. Jones was found to be guilty of undue care for following the sat nav down such an obviously dangerous path.

Then he was fined £370, ordered to pay the £500 recovery costs, a £15 victim surcharge and hit with six penalty points. He should have been publically humiliated too, what a goober.
