"These directions are for planning purposes only."
Posted by Gordon Smith

This is the disclaimer for driving directions on Google Maps. So I can rely on them for planning purposes, but not for ... what? Driving purposes?

The disclaimer continues: "You may find that construction projects, traffic, or other events may cause road conditions to differ from the map results." Of course, this last bit makes sense, so why not just say that?

By the way, Google successfully directed me around the gnarly Interstate highway construction new Marquette Law School today. So even though I was worried by the disclaimer, Google Maps delivered.
