    The FAA on themselves cannot police the 107 rules completely. They have to respond to any calls but can't roam the country side to just happen across someone illegally fly a drone. Are insurance companies becoming well versed in 107 rules so if someone is sued or getting fined for doing something illegal with a drone they can make the operator financially responsible? I feel this is an avenue to scare people straight as to operating their drone.

    Probably tough to expect an insurance company to play police-officer as well. That said, I'd expect premium punishments to mirror that of the automobile industry. Get a speeding ticket? You have demonstrated that you are a higher risk: your premium goes up. Totally destroy your car in an irresponsible or blatantly illegal act? Good luck getting covered again. It's all about risk. Insurance companies won't waste their time with enforcement, they'll just adjust the premium accordingly! Also Subrogation.
