This makes James May's efforts with his flying caravan look rather pathetic although Norwich airport did refrain from shooting him down.

Difficult to see a working response. The law is a waste of time - there already are laws to prevent drone flights over airports but they are meaningless without a way of enforcement.

Shooting down isnt likely to be effective and in any case there are lots of people around so I doubt that it would be permitted without at least a partial evacuation.

But there is real doubt whether the Gatwick sightings were real or imaginary or police drones or birds. That suggests the ability to disrupt without even flying a drone. Just a phone call maybe enough.


Totally Agree

It’s going to be the same with driverless cars

Disaffected or anti-social disrupters will just deliberately walk out infront of them in cities knowing their collision avoidance systems will just stop them

The only thing stopping someone doing it now as a protest is that they know they will get run over

Easily fixed, just design the software so that once in say 10,000 potential collisions, the car just keeps going. It would still be loads safer than having drivers, but sufficient risk to the pedestrian to ensure they don't take the car stopping for granted.

I blame Andy Warhol "15 minutes of fame" for this and BGT the kids thinks it's real innocent .
