Don’t follow Mr Google!

Something has been on my mind for a while now, and I've kept meaning to bring it to the attention of your esteemed readership and all those concerned, in authority, who can and should do something about it.

Mr Google describes Triq Gino Muscat Azzopardi in Sliema as a one-way street - but in the wrong direction - which is to say downhill - when the road sign, presumably erected by the local council with the approval of the police, is clearly in the opposite direction, i.e. uphill!

On further study, such an inconsistency would appear to be not an isolated incident. Needless to say, this can rise to dangerous situations with potentially fatal consequences.

How about getting it rectified ASAP, bearing in mind that these maps are so widely diffused and used by our ultra-modern gadgets?
