Default Spain Deploys Drones For Traffic Enforcement

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/66/6640.asp

Traffic agency in Spain supplements speed camera helicopters with drones to lower the cost of aerial ticketing operations.

"Over a decade ago, Spain's Direccion General de Trafico (DGT) became the first government agency to install speed cameras on helicopters for the purpose of issuing automated tickets from the sky. Now the same organization has turned to drones in an attempt to lower the high cost of aerial ticketing operations.

DGT currently has a fleet of nearly a dozen DJI drones, including the consumer grade Phantom 2 and Phantom 4 Pro as well as the professional Matrice 200 and S900 models. These devices can run for two hours at a time within a quarter mile operating radius from the drone pilot. The higher spec enterprise drones support a maximum four-mile range in exchange for a much shorter flight time.

"Incorporating these unmanned devices into the DGT's aerial surveillance services will contribute to better traffic management, greater protection for vulnerable groups -- cyclists -- and better service during special operations, such as MotoGP races," DGT director general Gregorio Serrano said in a statement."
