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!
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! ;)
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.
