Traveling at night will be safer.
The new feature will apparently provide next Map layer (such as Traffic or Bicycle Routes). It is to show which streets are bright at night and which are not. The former will be marked on the map in yellow.
Google itself has not yet presented this feature. The fact that it is being prepared is evidenced by the lines of code discovered in one of the beta releases of Map – v10.31.0. These lines are as follows:
It is not clear based on what Google Maps will determine if a street is well lit or not. That said, Google certainly found the right solution. Finally, the company has extensive experience in collecting data and creating maps.
Since so far the function is known only through the Google Maps source code, there are no screenshots where we could show it, at least for now. We hope that this will change as soon as possible. We are looking forward to official news about it and information about the first tests.
