    There's been one parked accross the road from my parents house for the past week or so now. Camera folded down and "bagged up". I think the operator may have been abducted!

    Suprisingly this is in a little village miles from anywhere important but it was seen doing the rounds of the village before parking up.

    Personally I think it's disgraceful that these cars (usually on french plates) are breaking the law by being over here on our roads with no road tax for more than 6 months.

    The two above are UK Plated, fine they are Opel not Vaxhall but still UK Plated so should be UK Taxed.

    I passed one on the A180 the other day with its camera bagged up. Our area (Grimsby) got rated the rudest area by Google!!

    I spotted the Google car (or rather, it spotted me) while I was on the bus a few weeks ago. I'm waiting for the imagery to appear now.
