I am surprised that it seems to be necessary for google to map where each lane is on each street. Can't the car see the lane marking lines? As for jaywalking: Can the car differentiate between a legal unmarked crosswalk (at a local street intersection for instance), and a non-legal crossing? Can it understand that there are legal crosswalks at T-intersections? Does it know that in Portland it is legal to cross mid-block as long as you are 150' from a legal crosswalk, but that the pedestrian does not have the right-of-way in that situation? I do look forward to merely stepping off the curb, in the dark, in the rain, with dark clothing on (like most pedestrians), and having the google car stop for me!
