Aerial drone to monitor drivers in S Korea

Police unveil novel weapon in their effort to check dangerous driving: a remotely operated aerial vehicle.

    South Korea’s roads have an unenviable reputation - as the most dangerous in the developed world, for both drivers and pedestrians.

    The country has the most road deaths in the  developed world - more than 5,500 a year. 

    To make the roads safer, South Korean police have launched what they say is a world first: they have put a remotely operated drone above a motorway to monitor bad drivers.
