Another reason to own a trailer

Has anyone read this true story today. A 62 year old woman in I beileive to be the U.K. Spent her life savings on a brand new motor home and on her maiden voyage she set her cruise control at 40 mph so that she could go in the back and make a cup of tea. Needless to say the motor home ended up going off road and into a tree totaling the vehicle.the woman was spared serious injury when she flew into the couch. In the court proceedings that followed she tried to tell the judge she had set the cruise control believing it was a autopilot and synced to the gps. The judge suspended her license for a year. I know we are headed for self driving cars but I don't think we are ready for a self driving motor home.

Old story with a new angle.
The version I heard was of an asian gent, who came to the US, rented a motor home to tour the country, and did the same thing.
