I think it should be legal because it’s their jobs and everyone has to have some type of job.

My opinion to this question is that it might be legal at some point and at another piont it might not be legal. i think it might be legal because it can help you determine where something is located and it might not be legal because it can be used for something bad so im not really sure about my answer.

My opinion is that it should be legal because it helps see the streets and we could get directions. We just write the adress and it will give us the directions.

I think it’s very legal because anything could happen with or without those cameras I think they are really looking for something like a bad crime or if sombody get lost they can help them find there way ecpecaily if it’s a police officer like a GPS system or somthing.

  Abilenne C. wrote @

Well i think this should “NOT” be legal because may people don’t want to be on the internet or have requested permission for that so i think this should not be legal.It would be okey if they ask for permission first or what they can do first they could wait till there isn’t anymore people on the street that they are going to photograph.

  CRIS F. PER. 4 wrote @

well i think that this should be legal because they are not doing nothing bad with their job . They are not putting no ones life on danger or doing something illegal with their job so i that it should be legal.

  Maria wrote @

yes this should me legal because that way you can know how the world looks like and the streets. but i think that taking pictures of other people without their permission is not legal because maybe some people don’t like taking pictures or maybe they are doing something private and don’t want others to know or see!!!!

i think it should be legal becouse there might be a time when someone has no idea of how to get their destination and then they could go google maps and find out the name of the streets and how to get there. they could also find out how far something might be, just in case they dont know how far it is.
