I like the 3rd comment on that item.
A rise in the use of drone in the area
Random drones over fields of cows, and vineyards
Could it be that motorists are now not the only easy targets???
Oh, motorists are easier than ever. Rather than an officer having to assess a situation and make a judgement it is now all automated. Speed camera - 85 on the M4 on a clear, bright summer Sunday morning at 6 a.m. - Bang to rights! Same road, winter, pouring rain 6 p.m 70 mph - no problem.
Police don’t want to get drawn into dronewatching and, once the EASA rules come in, the law will be too complex for your average, non-aviation specialist copper to make a snap judgement.
Hate to say it but it would be far easier for them if drones were illegal.
Our problem or should I say, the problem of the law abiding drone pilots (us ) amongst us that we get pulled down to the level of the illegal idiots who cause trouble!
Think I might watch the video of me doing 165MPH…
