Regulation of traffic directions? How are we living without these controls now?

Here’s yet another example of the kind of stupidity which drives our government. Regulation of traffic directions? Please tell me this is a joke. With GPS publicly available for what, 25 years, the government thinks they need to step in and save us from ourselves?

Here’s what the end result of this will be. Slower data updates, more expensive devices, increased costs of compliance, and non-compliance broadly.

What part of “Leave Me Alone” does the government NOT get!? If I want changes to my traffic direction, I’ll vote with my dollars and buy what best suits my needs. Trust me, I’m smart enough to get that accomplished.

Why do we put up with this crap?
