My take is that this is a rich landowner who went to lawyers to get it stopped, so of course the lawyer is going to come up with everything he possibly can- it's money in his pocket!And the air space argument is ridiculous, how high does that go? Yeah no one should be hovering a drone over anyone’s home or property recording and doing whatever but has the guy complained about airplanes and helicopters flying over? It’s basically a lawyers way of trying to find a way to make an argument to get a judge to side with the rich land owner. But surely there’s a limit right? …. Sorry for the rant but greediness is going to be the end of us all.
100% on the money. Well said.That is good news. There should be a common sense solution to access to public land. The hard part is determining the air space above the private land. Roads that were traditionally used to cross private land for access to public land and then closed when the land is sold now locking the public out of the public land is also troubling. Someday we will all have hover boards and not touch the private land. That also doesn't give anyone the right to hover around someone's property and claim no damage was done because you didn't touch it.
I think there should be easements granted to the public for access to public lands at logical points of access. This should be able to be done on a case by case basis. Considering all the money we waste, I think we could afford to install permanent ladders at corners and proper gates and cattle guards at road crossing access points.
