Looks like people behind them ran it as well.
Funny to think it’s true… But the cameras don’t capture when there is no motion…
Haha.. I guess they don’t care eh… No one’s watching?
Yeah, well, if you look at the car behind and follow that car, it is actually speeding (or going faster than the Google mobile) and there was no sign of him slowing down. If the Google driver stopped then the car behind could have just rear-ended the Google mobile. I would say it was a better choice to run this light. No excuse for the car behind.
Also if you look at the signal at right that tells if pedestrians should cross or not, it has a red hand. Meaning it was green when google van moved.
Also, you can see the vehicles on the perpendicular road staying still… why aren’t they moving on their green light?
Actually the crosswalk sign only changes if someone pushes the button to cross..
There are several ways to tell that they did indeed run the red light if you take the time and investigate, the most conclusive being: they stay the same distance from the cars ahead of them.
Yeah, I would agree that Google more than likely stopped legally at that light 🙂
Look up as it goes under the light, it’s green.
look straight up when your under the light. It’s green.
What about at the intersection of Broadway and West 131st St, NYC, heading north? The light is clearly red for Broadway, and green for W131st, all the way through.
Those of you saying he did not run the redlight, he infact did. The reason why its green when he is under it is because it was a different time of day. if you notice the scenary suddenly turns from dark to light plus none of the cars on the road are the same. but if you go foward one more time the scenary changes back. he was probably turning off from one of the side roads on the time it was green. its actually pretty simple to fiqure out if you look closely
Those of you who are pointing out the light being green when the van is underneath it… did you not notice that is the only picture in the sequence taken at a different time of day than the others?
Jeees does it really matter get a life
that is not true, move till being under the light. then slide the image to see towards the lights. THEY ARE GREEN !!!.
They did run it when it was red. Move beyond the red light while looking backwards. The image will change for one moment, ignore it, that’s a different time (it’s the car coming in from the side street). If you’re looking backwards, the streetview car and the car behind it keep going, but the third car stops at the red light. They may have run the light, but with the speed the pickup going behind it is going going through was better than getting rear-ended by slamming on the breaks.
just look up, the light is green when google van goes.
if u move it to under the light you see the light is green
