Slater Road, like Corbin Avenue, is the other long north/south road on the west side of New Britain, CT. The long road for the east side is, far and away, Stanley Street. Besides, New Britain did host Slater in 2017...kinda. Mario Lopez from "Saved By The Bell" filmed parts of a Christmas movie here with Melissa Joan Hart. :-/

This sign in Portland gives frighteningly little context:

France already has post-"End of the World (as we knew it)" imagery. I'd like to see Spain, where mandatory mask usage was in force from early on. That surely will be dramatic.

Street view has come out from Sept-Oct 2020 in the Bay Area, when the fires were raging. It's pretty shocking.

Looks like some weird reflection off the car's windshield on this satellite image...

Also appears 3 more times just to the north, but it still looks odd.

Someone doing the bunny ears hand symbol out of the window on a freeway.

.

This is on California SR60 in LA.

Nicest hand signal I've ever seen on a California freeway.

In other news, is this the last thing you see before entering hell? On the Flathead Rez.

Not crazy but interesting double image of a signal head that looks cool.

I believe that might be the RV that exploded in Nashville around Christmas time, but I may be wrong.

If you're in the Seattle SR 99 tunnel and you look up, you will see those annoying business and destination symbols that Google imposes on Street View, only you can't get there from here.

Google Maps constantly wants me to turn left into the tunnel from random streets in Belltown. Maybe I should try it someday.
