Google Maps Street View: A driver in Australia was caught doing something embarrassing
Google Maps Street View drivers are on the road for long stretches of the day.
Mapping thousands of miles of road, they are often forced to drive difficult routes as well.
Sometimes it may not always be the right time for a break even if the body needs it.
One driver found this out the hard way while traversing Australia.
Dressed smartly in a striped shirt and chinos, the poor man appeared to need a break
The Street View driver was spotted urinating on the side of the road outside Melbourne.
Dressed smartly in a striped shirt and chinos, the poor man appeared to need a break.
Perhaps not realising he was on camera, he then performed his business while caught by the lens.
Thankfully nothing can be seen and the car continues on the path without any further interruptions.
The driver will most likely be embarrassed to find himself immortalised on Google Maps.

Google Street View isn’t just mapped by cars, as even bikes and sheep have been used before.
The mapping technology uses mounted 360-degree cameras which take multiple pictures, stitching them together afterwards.
The Google driver is not the first person to be caught in a sticky situation by the cameras.
A young woman was spotted in an embarrassing fall by Google while she walked along a residential street.
It appeared to be a nasty fall with her legs slipping from underneath her.

Others have been caught in the act of cheating, with one woman spotting her fiancé with another woman.
Google Maps Street View was created in 2007, two years after Google Maps.
It was originally just in the US, before expanding to the rest of the world.
Many countries are still not available
however, such as North Korea and parts of New Zealand.
The reasons for unmapped regions include political tensions or difficult terrain for vehicles.
