New Louisiana Drone Laws

Filed under: drone,Law — tmaster @ 6:50 am

First Rep. Stephen Dwight, a Republican from Lake Charles, introduced law 1.

The law will restrict drone use near schools, school property or correctional facilities. It includes exceptions for police, situations where the landowner grants permission and for pre-agreed recordings like sporting events.

The law takes effect Aug. 1.

The second law introduced by Sen. Dan Claitor, a Baton Rouge Republican,

The law covers drones under criminal trespassing laws. The measure makes an exception for anyone flying the unmanned aircraft system for commercial agricultural use. It takes effect immediately.

Basically the second law makes it illegal to fly over anyone’s property. Since LA law no longer requires posted or no trespass signs to be trespassing.

So its only legal to fly if its legal for you to walk on the land.

But if you have a farm and are doing anything related to commercial agricultural then you can fly over neighbors land. Strange hu?
The second is likely to be modified because people are using drones to find cows. I would not be surprised to see lost farm animals added to the exempt list later on.
