One day while sitting at a stoplight at the intersection of Veterans Parkway & Jefferson I did a double take of a car to the left. From my viewpoint in the passenger seat I couldn’t tell what kind of car it was. Luckily that side of the intersection got the green light first and I had the video camera ready to record. The car went by quickly so it was hard to get a proper shot of it. Unfortunately I couldn’t get properly zoomed in enough to get a clear picture of the graphics.
But it is definitely a Google Maps Street View car visiting the Springfield Illinois area. Not sure if the driver was just passing through heading somewhere else – or if the car was busy getting updated data of our part of Central Illinois.
