(AUGUSTA,GA) New regulations for drones in Augusta have landed.

Commissioners approving restrictions on drones that would prevent their flying over events of 100 people or more  or over private property without  the owners permission..

The new rules will not impact commercial use of drones.

City leaders say it’s an  important step for public safety.

You got a lot of private drone operators and they haven’t had the experience we want to make sure they know what’s expected of them before some one is out there flying one and it causes lots of damage lawsuits and so forth.

Violation of the ordinance would be considered a misdemeanor that could be punished by sixth days in jail  and a fine of  1000 dollars
