    Yes, I don't know why we can't do the same. The technology is available.

    I did ask someone who knows about these things and said the drones require large support functions. I guess he was saying it is too expensive. I would have thought cheaper than a chopper's fuel and maintenance.

    Now if they can divert all the "support functions" from etoll...........

    I would have thought so too. Besides a chopper can only scan limited distance, I think.
