Beware local roads

I was tracing out my planned Irish driving route in Microsoft MapPoint 2004, and was surprised to find that it sent me back & forth across Dingle Bay (no, there's not a ferry) as part of a "local road". The latest version of the mapping software aka AutoRoute 2006 has thoroughly buggered up UK postcodes so is somewhere between useless and dangerous for anyone driving on those roads.

The last flying car route reported was between towns in Norway and involved a rather alarming diversion over the North Sea via Newcastle-on-Tyne. Posted by Picasa
