Google street view car blocked by angry mob

A Google street view car was met by an unruly crowd in the UK. Some homeowners in the town of Broughton, UK were upset that a Google car was driving and taking pictures of their homes and gardens.

"A member of the public had called us to report that he, along with a number of others, were standing in the middle of the road preventing the car from moving forwards and taking photographs. They felt his presence was an intrusion of their privacy."

Google did respond to the allegations that they do provide tools that allow users to remove the pictures of their homes to regain privacy. While it is understandable that one may be upset that a picture of their property is being shown online one must also understand that it is a static picture and not a video feed.
