NJ Passes Drunk-Droning Bill
New Jersey state legislators approved a ban on operating drones while inebriated on Monday. The legislation would force drunk or high drone pilots to pay a $1,000 fine or even face up to six months in prison.
The bill pass unanimously 39-0 in the State Senate and 65-0 in the State Assembly. All that is left to turn the bill into law is the Governor's signature - however, since Chris Christie's term ends January 16th, the legislature may wait until Phil Murphy has been sworn in.
In case you're wondering, the legal limit for drunk-droning would be the same as drunk-driving: 0.08 BAC.
