Target: Michael Huerta, Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration
Goal: Implement mandatory registration for drones weighing 250 grams or more to combat drone-related crime and danger.
The U.S. Department of Transportation wants to implement safety measures and accountability for drone users by recommending the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration requires all drones weighing 250 grams or more to be registered with the names and addresses of drone owners.
The weight criteria was established due to safety risks and potential damage caused by a drone collision. The drone registry would help officials to find the owners of any drones that break the law or commit crimes. Officials want to have greater accountability without hampering the drone market.
With a few dangerous drone-related incidents on record in the last year, such as a boy flying a drone with a gun attached to it and shooting it into the woods, or drones crashing into buildings, it’s vital that safety measures are put in place for these unmanned aircraft. Urge the FAA to implement mandatory registration for drones to combat drone-related danger and crime.
Dear Administrator Huerta,
It has been recommended to your administration to implement mandatory registration of drones weighing 250 grams or more in order to have higher safety measures in place for these aircraft and to ensure people are held accountable for any drone-related issues.
The popularity of this technology is soaring, but as much as they provide benefits, they also pose risks. It’s vital that regulations are in place to ensure that these drones aren’t used for wrongful acts and that when something does go wrong, owners are held accountable so justice can be served.
I urge you to implement mandatory registration for drones to combat drone-related danger and crime.
[Your Name Here]
