..."pledges to abstain from similar uses with city-owned, leased, or borrowed drones."

Hmmm..... Why would the city have/need drones? Can they really afford the cost to buy, maintain, and operate them?

Police: high speed chases, crowd security, reduced personnel costs.
Lots of good reasons- even more when prices come down.

They’re shoveling against the tide.
The first time a policeman is killed and the only evidence is from his drone “partner’ such a law as this will disappear immediately.

City planning departments everywhere used to spend a lot of money for aerial photographs, in the days before Google earth. They’re probably still contracting services from commercial aerial photographers, or paying for enhanced services from Google. (If anyone knows the latest data on this, please post it.) The drones could save a lot of money, and give much quicker results.
