Cops slap ticket on Street View spycar
Exclusive snap of Orwellian Opel bust
You'll enjoy this: Here's evidence that not even the might of Google permits it to park vehicles from its Orwellian Opel spycar fleet in reserved doctor spots:
Good work there by a vigilant Adam Ranshaw, and indeed the Boys in Blue, who apparently slapped the search monolith with a fine and a ticking-off for the violation in London's Long Lane
It's also beers all round for Simon West and his mates, who've been able to provide the first shaky video footage of the black hatchback doing its masters' dark will in Cambridge's Cherry Hinton last Saturday:
Meanwhile, our Google Maps web 0.2 mashup now boasts added sightings of the Street View fleet, including evidence that Aberdeen has fallen to the invading forces:
Keep those pictures coming here. They can run, but they can't hide. ®
Oh yes, even more beer for reader Ali, who provided evidence of Street View's limitless ambitions:
Reserved parking for doctors?
WTF! The handicapped parking here in the US is already bad enough but you guys have sunk to a new low with that one.
At least it gives those cameras on every street corning something to watch. "Hey, you there! Yeah, the bloke who just got out of the car parked in the DOCTOR spot. Hold up your General Practitioner license to the camera! What, no license!?!? Stand there and wait while we send someone to write you up."
If they are not careful, they could end up with Odd Job at the wheel at the local car crusher!

"Definate proof of Google taking pictures of children, where's the police when you need them?"
contery to popular belief, it is NOT against the law to take photographs in a public place, even if that picture does contain children.
it is also not against the law to take photos of gov. buildings, so long as you are on public property.
mines the one that's not been spotted yet
