Delivery drivers sometimes leave packages on doorsteps. But other times they need a signature from the person getting the package. They ring the doorbell. They ask the person who answers to sign. Then they give them the package.

People can put an address into a GPS system. The tool is on most smartphones. GPS tells people how to get to where they need to go. It works because of machines in space. It is important for people to put in the address before driving. Typing while driving is dangerous. When the GPS knows the path, it will say directions out loud. This way, the driver does not touch the GPS system or phone.
