Google Saved My Life (Maybe)

So today coming towards the end of my day in work I do my usual routine of firing up Google Maps, enabling the traffic layer, and decide which way home I’m going.  I have a choice of either through the Birkenhead Tunnel or over Runcorn Bridge.  Both routes were pretty clear so I decided on Runcorn Bride as it involves more motorway travel so normally faster.

I get home, open up Twitter and see that there’s been a crash involving a wagon in the Birkenhead tunnel.  If I hadn’t of checked Google Maps, I would of probably gone through the tunnel approximately the same time as the crash, and who know’s?!

So, Google saved my life (maybe) 😉
