Just been google mapped on the outskirts of Glasgow

About an hour ago i was sitting at traffc lights not far from my house on the outskirts of Glasgow when a unmarked car came out of the side street with a multi camera thing mounted on it's roof. It looks just like the one I saw on a forum a few months ago which talked of google mapping. Multiple lenses in a hexagonal shaped box mounted at the top of 1 to 1.5 m rod on the top of the unmarked car.
I was at the front of the que of traffic so i guess i'll need to to keep an eye out for my blurred out face on a googlemap near me.

I drove past one in Liverpool a couple of weeks ago.

Yep, that's the one (or at least very much like the one) that I saw.  No idea about the logo though.  I didn't take that much notice!
