No, you have to do Street View which lets you see cars driving at that actual moment, not Google Earth, thats older, go to Google to Street View, its in real time

Unless I’m misunderstanding things, “street views” are not live in real time ~ or at least in my city. I see nothing moving, cars pedestrians, etc all remain in the same place they were days weeks or months ago. And yes I’m using the street view option. I find nothing live in google but I have to admit that they have a great website. I used it several times to check streets and building locations before going on vacations. I was able to identify before getting into a couple of major cities just which way to go before getting there and I was able to find parking lots and building, along with how the exit ramp disappeared onto the local streets. It’s a great help and I’ll continue to use it.

When they (google maps) go live ~ then I want an original Philly Cheese Steak sandwich from Pa., BBQ from Memphis, Chicago style pizza, and Seattle’s best coffee and I don’t want to leave the house.

I've seen "other city webcams" that will provide a view of "live" but they are other websites.

For those wondering. Google Streetview is a car, usually a small Chevy, that drives around with a camera attached to the roof. The camera is mounted on a pole a couple feet above the car. The website below has the info.

I found a website a while back that showed a prostitute giving a customer a hand job on Streetview.

Oops.

That is probably why Google decided to blur out the faces!

That's a TERRIBLY annoying "feature," btw.

I use street view daily in my job, to read highway signs. Their software blurs many, if not most, of them, rendering the site useless in those instances. I understand the privacy concerns, and I support the concept, but I'd like to see them get it right.
