This week in GPS — February 9th, 2013

GPS distraction blamed for truck-train collision

GPS distraction blamed for truck-train collision

I might as well call this the train wreck edition, for more reasons than one. Hopefully all the links work; I had some problems this week with the plugin I use to handle bookmarked links – you may see many redirect thru Delicious before resolving to the proper URL. Today’s lead image is a lesson in GPS distraction.

This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter.
