UPDATE: Seems to be a national epidemic.
The MBTA reports a woman who says she was only following her GPS's directions wound up stuck on Green Line trolley tracks in Brookline early Monday.
According to MBTA Transit Police, a South Attleboro resident was driving in Brookline shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday when she consulted her GPS to see what she should do next:
According to [the woman], the GPS told her to take a left turn onto Beacon Street. She stated she took the left when the GPS said to, and drove onto the inbound tracks. She stated a male who was passing by in another vehicle, told her she was fine and to continue down the tracks and get off them at the next intersection.
At that time, she continued down the tracks and when she didn't think she could make it any further she attempted to put the car in reverse. She said the tires to her vehicle spun but the car did not move and the vehicle became stuck.
Police issued her a citation for a left-turn violation and for impeded operation.
