USING NAVIGATION APPLICATIONS IN THE MOUNTAINS CAN LEAD TO A BAD DAY!
SCM ALERT🚨, Mon Feb 18 2019, 02:33PM

THE SB COUNTY SHERIFF WOULD LIKE US TO COMMUNICATE THE FOLLOWING TO THE PUBLIC: PLEASE DO NOT USE GOOGLE OR OTHER NAVIGATION APPLICATIONS TO NAVIGATE AROUND ROAD CLOSURES OR TRAFFIC BACKUPS IN THE SAN BERNARDINO MOUNTAINS. PEOPLE USING THESE APPS SUCH AS GOOGLE MAPS HAS LEAD TO SEVERAL VEHICLES AND PARTIES GETTING STUCK IN THE BACK COUNTRY. DUE TO EXTREMELY COLD TEMPERATURES THESE FOLKS THAT GET STUCK END UP BECOMING A RESCUE EMERGENCY AND TAKES AWAY VALUABLE RESOURCES FROM MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES.

here's an example.. asked Google for a route from north OC to Fawnskin. One option was 38 thru Seven Oaks and up 2N08 to Knickerbocker.. Snow Cat anyone?

I have sent map examples and the SB Sheriff warnings to someone I know at Google. He replied he would forward the information but said that this is machine generated with little or no humans.. Go Robot!

I think someone needs to indicate that the forest roads are closed before this problem is fixed.
