Drones do not seem to be in the news these days while bearing good news and glad tidings. Sure, deliveries in the future will be more efficient once the various drones programs take off, but essentially, a lot of it boils down to the responsibility of the owner to pilot their own drone in the right manner without causing any harm to the people around. This has led the to the introduction of a “No Drone Zone” for the entire duration of the Super Bowl, as you can see in the YouTube video above. You can bring your lucky jersey, a can of your face paint and your team spirit, but kindly leave your drone at home. Yup, Levi’s Stadium will be a bona fide No Drone Zone for this Super Bowl edition.
It makes plenty of sense, actually, as we do not need an untoward accident to distract from what the Super Bowl is all about. Not only that, drones have been said to hinder firefighting efforts in California, injure a baby, cut a child’s eye and rendered that eyeball useless, and even crashing into an athlete – which is not what we would like to see this Super Bowl. While having insurance for your drone is good, flying it responsibly is even better. If you own a drone, are you one of the 300,000 people who have registered with the FAA already?
