NYPD crackdown on drones
From CBS 2:
More than 600,000 drones were registered with the Federal Aviation Administration last year alone.
As they grow in popularity, so do the number of accidents involving some of the amateur aircraft.
To see how the NYPD is cracking down on rogue drones, CBS2’s Maurice Dubois took to the sky with the department’s aviation unit.
Although this report states that drones are illegal in NYC except at 5 city parks, in reality there are no local ordinances pertaining to drones. The FAA requires that drone operation happen at least 5 miles away from airports, which prohibits drone operation in most of Queens.
