Why do some people think that it is OK to fly their drones over other people’s property? I am having that problem, and I do not appreciate it. I consider it to be an invasion of my privacy.

I understand what it is like to have a new toy (I have a 12-year-old grandson). What I don’t understand is why people think it is OK to fly those things over someone else’s property. I find it very annoying and inconsiderate. This particular drone has a camera on it, so if I were out sunbathing I would worry about any photos it was taking. I can think of wrong reasons for people to do that and innocent reasons.

I like my privacy and wish that there were laws to protect homeowners. For someone who was a victim of domestic violence, something like a drone flying around overhead could send them into a panic. A woman living alone could get really nervous having someone they don’t know flying a drone overhead, possibly taking photos.

Laws need to be put in place to protect the privacy of homeowners.
