Google Maps Gains “Avoid Arizona” Option

by Danny Sullivan on April 27, 2010

Headed cross-country and worried about a new law that might get you stopped by the police in Arizona because you look like an illegal immigrant? Not to fear! Google has now added an “Avoid Arizona” option for those generating directions.

Google’s other options have been super helpful. You can get directions suited for taking public transit, walking, bicycling or by car. Now the Avoid Arizona option gives you directions that route you around that state:

Yeah, the option’s a joke I made up, if that’s not obvious, the law, unfortunately, is real.

As we think twice about routing, we might recall that it was on this date in 1920 that the first game of the Negro National League (baseball) was played in Indianapolis, Indiana.
