French police in the Gironde have invested in a quadro-rotor drone to help with roadside checks and easier identification of dangerous driving on motorways, following a recent test on the A10.
The drone simply monitors traffic and identifies dangerous motorists. Once identified, police motorcyclists are notified to intercept and stop the driver. At the moment, it is not equipped with an automatic number plate recognition camera.
