Success: Stricter Rules on Drones to be Implemented

drone-by-michael-mk-khor

Target: Michael P. Huerta, Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration

Goal: Applaud the FAA for sending out a warning about drone misuse and implementing stricter rules.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently made an official statement with a warning to drone users who were operating the machines in illegal or dangerous ways. The agency reminded users that unauthorized operators may be subject to stiff fines, criminal charges, and jail time.

Additionally, the FAA is in the process of developing and enforcing stricter regulations, such as banning drones from flying above 500 feet or over bystanders. This progress comes from petitions like ForceChange’s “Regulate Dangerous Drones After Drone Delivers Drugs to Prison.”

Drones have been causing all kinds of issues across the country, like interfering with emergency responders, attempting to deliver drugs to prison yards and having weapons attached to the flying devices. Stricter regulations are extremely necessary to ensure this technology doesn’t become a bigger problem, so this warning and push for more regulations is a big step in the right direction. Applaud the FAA for sending out a warning about drone misuse and implementing stricter rules.
