Safety Concerns About Unauthorized Drones At Sports Events

drones at sports eventsUnauthorized drones seen at increasingly more major sporting events are now prompting  concerns amongst numerous safety experts.

As if the large crowds and tailgating parties in our stadiums are not enough we are now witnessing another danger in the form of rogue drones this can appear anywhere out of the blue.

The FAA is now investigating a number of incidents where drones equipped with cameras violated airspace restrictions in particular at major United States sporting events. The problem is in particular evident when there are NFL football games but drones are now also increasingly seen all across the UK and other European countries.

A campus police spokesman from the University of Wisconsin in Madison to the press: “those drones are an absolute safety concern. You never know what might be carried along with something like that”.
