Google Maps Street View.... car

Went for a drive today, several miles down local Country Lanes, and through some Villages, when we came upon a strange looking Beastie !!
As we got closer, it was evident it was a Google Maps Street View car....
Nowhere to pass, so we just travelled behind the GMSVC, doing a steady 30mph for several miles.
So, will we feature when the results are published ?
When we arrived back home,  checked the Google Maps Street View site, where we were today was last updated 2009, so it may be a while before our journey is published.
No doubt a lot of computing goes on first
Google do state that car registrations and faces are obscured, even so, if we feature.... we will know it is us !

I find it interesting to view various locations, such as where we used to live, inevitably there is more vegetation after a few years.

Photo shows a Google Maps Street View car, exactly like the one we followed for around 20 minutes.

Even though they have the UK covered they are still updating it.
I saw one on the M25 a while back and followed it but I didn't appear. Maybe just checking for local wifi :canofworms:  Smiley
Let's be careful out there !
