Drones over airports


I’m puzzled that authoritie­s need to use the Civil Aviation Act to prosecute these scoundrels using drones near airports. Under present law, the offence of careless use of a motor vehicle includes any vessel because the definition of a vehicle is defined that way. If that definition were expanded to include drones these miscreants might think twice, hopefully before there’s an accident.
