Jersey City guy rides bicycle into Lincoln Tunnel because GPS told him to
He's 26 years old and he's having his 15 minutes of fame. The Jersey City resident works for a Manhattan business delivering food. He was doing just that Tuesday night when things went terribly wrong. He was using a GPS phone app which told him to go into the Lincoln Tunnel.
Bicycles are not allowed in the Lincoln Tunnel. He was intercepted on the New Jersey side around 7:30pm by Port Authority police, no doubt setting off bells and whistles when he was seen on a bicycle carrying a package into the target sensitive tunnel. He explained to law enforcement he was simply following what his app told him to do. He even showed them the app and a PA spokesperson said it supported his claim.
Nonetheless he was slapped with a traffic ticket for trespass.
Do you know anybody who implicitly follows GPS directions no matter what? I can only think of one. And that was a fictitious guy named Michael Scott on a TV show called The Office.
