I certainly hope so. Drones are deceptively simple to use. The consequences of a mistake can be grossly out of scale compared to the device itself.

I expect that "enforcement" would be in the form of insurance companies refusing to cover damages.

Maybe they will look into local newspapers and TV stations as well - probably more guilty of more dangerous operations.

Beware of Amazon: using their permissions for BVLOS the whole of a new rail route (150 miles) has been flown using drones:

Quite why it wasn't done by a manned aircraft I don't know, but the firm doing the flying appear to have multi-million euro backing. You don't need a surveyor if you have sufficient cash.

They made a Digital Train Model?

Deputy spelling police here.  But, well, it is for a railroad, so I can see why the reporter was confused.

I believe drones will only get smaller for mapping purposes. Smaller means less dangerous, less visible, but the whole privacy thing will likely play a role.

What privacy thing?  (By the way, your fly is unzipped.)
