GPS-equipped . . . Dustcarts

You'd think that doing the same routes week in, week out, dustcart drivers would know where they're going . . .

But York City Council has, apparently, spent £40,000 fitting GPS equipment to the bin vehicles fleet.

Actually, it's not as daft as it sounds, as they say it will allow them to track them identify the nearest vehicle to a job such as a missed collection.

I wonder how long it will be before someone steals a GPS unit like that?
