Some People Are Beyond Help!

Article from my local newspaper about a man who is worried that because his number plate is shown on Googles Street Maps that he fears for his identity. That was bad enough but as a comment left at the bottom of the article points out, the man has now also given away his name, age, adress and occupation!

The comments on the bottom of the link speak volumes here.

I wonder how long it will take for the Congestion Charge dodgers to use Streetview as an attempted escape route from paying up.

I am surprised that he has managed to evolve thus far.

I went to Sainsbury's this morning and was horrified to see dozens of cars without their number plates blurred. This is a criminals charter. Anyone could just note down a number and clone it.I am going to remove my number plates to safeguard my identity. I'm sure that the police will understand! ;)

What a load of twaddle.

Some are saying that the new Google Street Maps are giving the criminal fraternity a leading edge ;o))

When Google Street Maps reach our area,I hope the two dogs and me with the 'defencive' instrument is on full view ;o((

You can get far more information about properties from the older 'Birds Eye Views', where you can see a location from all angles from above. OK you can't read Reg Nos. but you can see into back gardens etc. StreetView only shows you the front of a property which anyone can see from the street. I really can't see what people are getting so het up about.
