Nothing is hidden from Google's camera cars

Nothing is hidden from Google's camera cars

When you're driving you know the police can be watching your every move. Whether it's speeding, running a red light, making a dangerous lane change or even causing an accident, there's plenty you can do to catch their eye.

Naturally, with advances in technology law enforcement and governments have added automated systems - speed cameras, red-light cameras, etc. - to help catch you. But if you do get caught doing something wrong, the issue is between you, the court and maybe another motorist if one was involved. But what if the whole world could see your slip up?

I'm sure you're familiar with Street View in Google Maps, which lets you see an area from the ground rather than the sky. It's great for seeing landmarks and storefronts in an area you haven't visited before. Google is even expanding it to non-street areas like under the ocean, the Grand Canyonthe Taj Mahal and even back in time.

Of course, to do this mapping, Google's camera cars and camera backpacks are everywhere recording in real time. That means if you're passing by one you could wind up on camera and available for anyone to see, like these thieves or these pranksters.

And if you have an auto accident, it's available for anyone to see too.
