Good idea. Instead of trusting an often-wrong piece of equipment, the knowledge will come from local experience. Road works etc. don't show up on sat navs.
Bath and North East Somerset Council (BANES) is proposing a ban on the use of sat nav in taxis. It says taxi drivers should know the area well enough without having to rely on the devices. The new licensing conditions would also include smarter dress regulations.
A final decision will be made in the next few months.

– HEALTH AND SAFETY EXECUTIVE SPOKESPERSON
HSE has issued a Crown Improvement Notice on the Ministry of Defence following the deaths of three Army reservists while on selection tests on the Brecon Beacons in July.
The notice requires the Ministry to take action to deal with risks arising from its military selection exercises.
HSE continues to investigate the deaths, supporting Dyfed Powys Police which is leading the investigation.
The notice served by the Health and Safety Executive says the Ministry of Defence:
- Failed to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to the health and safety of employees, namely those soldiers participating in the aptitude phase in the Brecon Beacons on July 13
- Failed to properly identify the risks associated with the activity and implement effective measures to control them, including those relating to heat illness
- Failed to review the risk assessment when it became clear persons participating in the test were suffering from heat illness
The HSE notice went on: 'These contraventions are likely to continue or be repeated during the planning of, training for and carrying out of future selection tests of this nature'.
The Ministry of Defence has released a statement saying it will implement all of the HSE's recommendations.
