Basic Information

"Warning about GPS Systems!

Vehicle Navigation Systems and GPS units may provide inaccurate information. This can send drivers the wrong way on roads to sites which never had actual assigned addresses (such as former farm fields and swamps), leading them to dead ends or areas prohibited to the public, or sending them on roads which are not for vehicle use. Please use the brown informational signs from Interstate exits for wayfinding.
