The Trump administration on Monday proposed rules that would allow drones to operate over populated areas and end a requirement for special permits for night use, long-awaited actions that are expected to help speed commercial use of small unmanned aerial vehicles in the United States.

The proposals, drafted by the Federal Aviation Administration of the U.S. Transportation Department, come amid concerns about dangers that drones potentially pose to aircraft and populated areas.

The chance of a drone crashing into you or an aircraft at night will be more likely if these new rules are passed. On the other hand you could get a pizza delivered and not have to tip a driver.

The drones will be equipped with tranquilizing dart guns to shoot non-tippers.

Yeah this will never pass, keep your damn air delivery pizza my privacy is more important. They really are dull if they think this will fly with all the regulations they themselves put on civilian drones.

Why not? We are already flying them in broad daylight here in Dearborn...and some residents have asked DHS to stop droning over their homes everyday. Even though it only a single one.

A few times daily one can see them banking in and out of and over the city limits btwn here and the city of Detroit. And they are not delivering anything.

Just think of the opportunity options for pirate drones to hijack the pizza delivery drones and make off with the cargo.

I would rather tip a driver, the amount of impending automation is going to be a raw deal for a lot of folk.

This could be the beginnings of a Civil Drone War!

My bet is Jeff Bezos will lose a lot of drones!

Or just hack the drone and land it at your house. You could build up a fleet of drones as long as you know how to disable the tracking.
