Not really. Their picture on my street was taken right in front of my house. It is a useful tool and happened to catch a man talking to someone in a car in this instance. The people in the car could be on vacation and lost and asking for directions.

I guess I am looking at the overall implications of what this has the potential to be. I don't see much good about it (maybe I am just a privacy freak)

Well chet...

Cliff's notes: the streetview picture showed a Mercury Grand Marquis on the street and a man standing just outside the driver side window with a large wad of cash in hand and clearly visible. Car's plate numbers were also very clear.

Here's a screencap from a further distance:



For all we know, perhaps the person in the car was lost and asking for directions and giving a tip to the man on the street.

Edit: Someone over on WRXF did get a good screencap:
