Council wages war on sat-nav technology in Cornwall
They have become a scourge of the countryside - lorries stuck on Cornish roads after obeying their sat-nav directions.
Now Cornwall Council is waging war on the use of sat-navs in the hope of avoiding similar scenes.
Council member Armand Toms has had enough of seeing vans and lorries taking inappropriate routes through Cornwall that sees them blocking up roads and having to call for rescue.
Mr Toms has put forward a motion which says: “This Council resolves to ask Government and local MPs to support the introduction of a bill to control the use of sat-navs and mobile devices giving routes through towns and villages which are not appropriate for vehicles.”

Mr Toms will also push for a change to the Highway Code to have “a sign which indicates that the use of sat-navs and other mobile direction devices will not give routes suitable for vehicles”.
