The Guardian: Pictou residents upset with Google Maps leading ferry traffic to their front door

The Guardian (this one’s in Canada): Pictou residents upset with Google Maps leading ferry traffic to their front door. “Spring Point Lane is not home to the Northumberland Ferries terminal, known to many as the Caribou-Wood Islands ferry. The half dozen residents who live on the rural lane know this, as do most people in Pictou County, but anyone using the Google Map app on their phone or computer could be easily led astray…. A Northumberland Ferries employee directing traffic at the Caribou terminal on Tuesday said she hasn’t heard any complaints about people ending up on Spring Point Lane, but she’s heard that some people who type in P.E.I. expecting to end up on the Confederation Bridge, instead land at the ferry terminal.”
