Position of GPS person figure wrong side of street

Sanity check. Have you seen this?

The little person figure in Google Maps shows on my left but they are on the right (side of the street). They cross the street to me and now the figure is on the other side where they came from.

It affected smooth pickup on the busy, one way, 3 lane street.

I am sure I was not disoriented...

GPS is not always perfect, especially if you're in a downtown area. If they gave you a street address, it may help. If the address is on the even side and the pin is on the odd, I'll usually default to the address in those cases.
