New Law to Fine Drone Users for Invasion of Privacy
By Joseph Tepper, October 15, 2018 @ 06:40 PM (EST)


Don’t use your drone to spy on people. That’s the common-sense policy and new law in Pennsylvania. Governor Tom Wolf signed the new legislation into law, which will impose a $300 fine for those who use drones to spy or otherwise endanger the physical wellbeing of another.

“With the rise in popularity of drones with video cameras, this is a commonsense step to prevent the use of drones to invade someone’s privacy,” says Governor Wolf. “Drones should not be a tool to spy on someone in their yard or through their window.”

Agreed on that last point. Going further into the category of illegal things not to do with your drone, the bill also imposes a $25,000 penalty for those who use a drone to smuggle contraband into prison.
