    BERLIN - Two British seniors landed in hospital in southern Germany after their car’s global positioning system directed them to drive into a church.

    While driving their Renault in the evening on a back road near the Austrian border, the navigation system instructed the couple to turn right where there was no road.

    “They were confused and didn’t notice that the navigation system was faulty,” a police spokeswoman said.

    The 76-year-old driver then ploughed into the side of the village church, writing off the car, knocking a picture off the wall and damaging the building’s foundations. Total damages were some 25,000 euros, police in the nearby town of Immenstadt said.

    The couple, who were travelling to France, spent the evening in hospital recuperating from minor injuries.

    This is why old people should not be allowed to drive. Therefore, I call upon Rock, Bubba, Pat, Ginger, and Shannon to voluntarily surrender this licenses. :D
