New Jersey Bill Would Make Drunken-Droning a Crime


Date: December 27, 2017

TRENTON, N.J. – On Thursday, a bill was passed to stop individuals from operating drones while under the influence of alcohol.

The Democrat-led Senate approved the legislation 39-0.

Almost 38 states are considering drone legislation this year, according to the National Conference on State Legislatures.

If a person operates a drone while under the influence of alcohol, it will be a disorderly person offense for which he/she will have to pay the amount of $1,000 in fine and also have to serve jail for 6 months.

The bill will also make utilizing a drone to search for wildlife and endanger people or property a similar offense. Other than that, it will stop people from utilizing drones to endanger safety at correctional facilities.

There are some other states who introduced the bill related to the use of drones near jails.
