If this passes, I'd also like to see traffic laws, and zones reviewed, because as it stands, cities put traffic cameras in places where there is a high amount of speeders, not because it's unsafe to speed in that section, but because it's a guaranteed cash cow. When you're keeping up with traffic it's sometimes hard to slow down to the speed limit.

Umm... I oppose drones to catch speeders, but could someone enlighten me on the 1984 reference?
1984 is a work of literature about a person living under a totalitarian government which is constantly watching all its citizens under the guise of "Big Brother". Its really worth a read.
More and more cameras are cropping up all over the place allowing the government to watch us, this is just an extension of that. A mobile extension that isn't particularly visible to us (being several miles in the air)

Thanks, but you only needed to mention Orwell.

Sorry if I'm a bit close-minded, but can someone say to me why they don't want drones used for speeders? Is it because they're too scared that money will becoming out of their pockets?

No, its just that the excuse to catch speeders will give way to much more dangerous activities. I'm not exactly a conspiracy theorist, but I'm absolutely against anything that can be abused like this could be.

I'm so glad I'm not an adult so I don't need to worry about this. XD

I have voted in every election I have been eligible for.

Fulfilling my duty as a citizen. B-)

To me, voting is an insult. It's like being asked to choose whips your pants down and shags you up the arse. But, at least you have a "choice".

Democracy is the worst form of government for a reason.

Build a $175,000,000 dollar piece of sophisticated tech to issue $175 speeding tickets? Not to mention the money it takes to maintain and run a single drone (routine diagnostics, fueling, repairs, etc.).

The US government isn't exactly known for its efficiency, is it?
