I enjoyed your views on the issue.
Allow me to retort...
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?
For the reference about 1984 ....its to much for me to type here on my phone but you can read this http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four..... or im sure you can find the movie online.... you will find it very enlightening
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
you realize that they could use drones to spy on you without having to use "checking for speeders" as an excuse?
Its not something that can only be abused against adults. Besides, adulthood comes fast, so worry anyway.
I mean that I don't need to vote.
Give it time, you'll see.
I have voted in every election I have been eligible for.
Fulfilling my duty as a citizen.
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?
