Woman Sues Google Over Utah Walking Directions : NPR
A pedestrian injured by a motorist while following an online route has filed a lawsuit claiming Google Inc. supplied unsafe directions.
Lauren Rosenberg filed a lawsuit on Thursday seeking more than $100,000 in U.S. District Court in Utah. It also named a motorist she says hit her.
Rosenberg used her phone in January to download directions from one end of Park City to the other.
Google Maps led her to a four-lane boulevard without sidewalks that was "not reasonably safe for pedestrians," according to the lawsuit filed by the Northridge, Calif., resident.

She was struck by a speeding car on a pitch-black night
The boulevard has a walking path on the side Rosenberg failed to reach
..... Young said the walking path was "totally snowpacked" and of no use to pedestrians in January.
so to summarise.... the woman was walking in the dead of night, when the roads were icy and snow packed, following directions on her phone.... and this is googles fault? for the first time ever i can use this acronym and actually mean it. LOL
