Google maps banned on Sardinia

'Old paper maps better' says local mayor

(ANSA) - Cagliari, October 14 - A mayor in the Ogliastra area of Sardinia has banned the use of Google maps after too many people got lost on trekking paths and remote roads locally after using the app.
    "The old paper maps are better", said Baunei Mayor Salvatore Corrias.
    Several hikers have gone missing and many cars got stuck in the impassable narrow roads of the Supramonte area after using Google Maps.
    Signs have now been put up warning drivers "Don't Follow the Directions of Google Maps." "We are putting them up everywhere," Corrias told ANSA.
