Re: San Fransisco police getting drones
said by Blackbird:Shoots to hell their argument for requiring LOUD motorbikes for safety reasons.
The problem is that most motorcycle-automobile accidents occur as simple failure-to-yield types (a car pulling out of a side-street, turning right-on-red, turning across traffic into a side-street/entrance, etc), where subsequently the auto driver states he "didn't see" the moving cycle that he hit.
To pay for these drones they will likely cover then in neon billboards (think Blade Runner), so visibility shouldn't be a problem.
