    Hi Reams,

    Too many laws:
    If I were king . . . we’d only need one rule to cover everything: Don’t do noth’n that’s unfair, dangerous to, or scares the dickens out of other folks.

    Penalty for non-compliance will be anything from a good tongue lashing to incarceration, in a not-fun place, for a very long time.

    Regards,
    Tom Charlton (whos solving the world’s problems one at a time<grin>)

      I'm wondering if any of those laws are valid. The states don't get to regulate operating airplanes, so why do they get to regulate operating drones?

        Depends. I know there's still aspects of airplane operation that the states can still regulate - such as banning advertising banners. Still, I get your point. This one does seem to infringe on the Fed's regulation.


        Doing a quick hunt, I did find this article from last year: Man gets 30 days in jail for drone crash that knocked woman unconscious

        I do know enough about law to know the details matter, so: STATE OF NEW JERSEY SENATE, No. 3370

          Steph -

          My guess is you are right about this being NJ overreach.... and that there is some Federal preemption as to regulation - although there seems to be a wildly divergent set of opinions in the wake of FAA's defeat on drone regs at the Court of Appeals in DC....

          Here is a link to a local (NW, Washington State) outfit that helps municipal governments decide what they can and can't do on a wide variety of subjects, including drones....

            Drinking and droning sounds like something that would be fun.

              While I was in college, I did my fair share of drinking followed the next morning by groaning, but that was long before drones.

                Why don't they just outlaw the phrase "Hold my beer and watch this".

                            As Lt. Sohn says, "It's good to be retired." Study normal English and enjoy!
