Belgian woman meant to drive 38 miles to pick up friend from station ends up driving 900 miles after satnav disaster

Post by Mark

Sabine Moreau, 67, had intended to drive to Brussels from her home in Solre-sur-Sambre to pick up a friend from the train station – a journey of just 38 miles. But she took a catastrophic wrong turn and eventually ended up 900 miles away in Zagreb, Croatia.

Despite crossing five borders and seeing multiple-language traffic signs, she did not stop to question her sat-nav until two days later when she realised that she may not be in Belgium any more.

Although she stopped to refuel her car several times, Ms Moreau did not think her TomTom could be leading her down the wrong path.

‘I saw all kinds of traffic signs. First in French, then in German – Cologne, Aachen, Frankfurt,’ she told a Belgian news website.

‘But I didn’t ask myself any questions. I was just distracted, so I kept my foot down,’ she added.
