That camera mount looks pretty damn tall. I guess they need really attentive drivers. A low hanging tree branch may be enough to do some damage to the expensive cameras on top.

It also explains why the new tunnel on the A86 West isn't covered yet.

Drivers are hired through Immersive Media. I found this article:

http://gizmodo.com/283287/immersive-...gle-streetview

(Interestingly, in the requirements there's no word about a clean driving record - maybe that would conflict with the strong sense of urgency.)

I see those all the time. Great cars, no matter how rubbish and unsafe they may be, they are great.

Another quite big update, this time Finland and Norway were added, as well as new locations in already covered countries.

Arguably the world's best view from a freeway:

Cahill Expressway, Sydney (built as a freeway)
Underneath the roadway, but elevated above ground, there's a railway station (the only elevated one in the city) which is part of the City Circle. Ever seen a double deck subway? That's what runs in Sydney.
At the end of the freeway, there's a tight 270 degree loop to climb to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
