In the last nine months I've had three NMACs in patterns at non-towered airfields, all of which were caused by others in the pattern who chose to disregard normal procedures and radio calls we're all supposed to be using to play nice in uncontrolled airspace. All three would have been avoidable had everyone been using ADS-B, and in fact one *should* have been avoided had I bothered to use the traffic display correctly. That's a mistake I won't make again.
Yes, ADS-B does have privacy issues that need to be addressed and no, it's not exactly cheap. But in the grand scheme of things (my things at least) it's a net benefit. Your mileage may vary.
