From there, with your mouse, pull down the peg man that lets you look head-on at a location, At this point, you need to adjust where you are viewing by clicking the arrows that appear in Street View.

Clicking on the arrows moves your view forward or backward depending on the arrow you choose. Click on the arrows, zooming in on the mile marker signs as you pass them. For most roads, as you head north, the mile numbers get higher, and as you head south, the numbers go lower. Once you find your first mile marker, proceed north or south depending on the mile number you are trying to find.
