The first two cars in the State of Ohio crashed into each other. And we have killed tens of thousands of the people every year in auto accidents, competing for the common space.
The people with horses said they both had no business on the roads at all. Now we are competing for the airspace with drones. And using the same standards to resolve those conflicts; after the fact punishment for the evildoer.
The people with airplanes think the drones have no business in the sky. Really? Except that now we ignore the fact that drones are exclusively guided by computer. And they have GPS and the computer knows where it is and where it can be at all times. A large airplane can send a signal projected a suitable distance ahead to command the drone to exit the path safely.
Without all the hyperbole, vitriol, and lamentation for the Neanderthal days when everything was right. The public needs to recognize an easy solution, rather than the me vs. them conflict imposing restrictions on those who are creating new ways of doing things; some of which will be better, even better than horses.
