Google Maps has finally integrated Street View imagery with driving directions, now you can preview your route before hitting the road. , says Google Lat Long Blog. If you try to find driving directions in one of the 42 US cities that have Street View images, Google will include these images for each intersection.

Look for the camera icons next to your directions — the camera means that Street View is available at the intersection, click the camera icon and you'll be transported to that intersection, with a giant arrow showing you what to do. You can follow the arrows to explore along your route, previewing things like landmarks, speed limits, and road conditions.

Take a look at this video to see it in action and hear about other helpful uses of Street View's integration with driving directions.
