DroneDJ reports that Prairie Village, Kansas, has passed an ordinance “to limit how and where people can fly drones in the city.” The new ordinance “makes it illegal to fly a drone near people without their consent, or over large events without permission, or over private property without authorization.” Pilots who “violate the ordinance could be charged with a class ‘C’ misdemeanor, the least serious type of offense, which carries up to a $500 fine or one month in jail.” The FAA “regulates commercial drone flight, so the ordinance would apply only to people using drones for recreational use.” (Image Credit: Associated Press–©)
