star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the safety risks of drones to transport very seriously. We have already taken action on the misuse of drones by improving enforcement of the law, resulting in several successful drone prosecutions. Following consultation, the Government announced in July that it will introduce a registration scheme to increase the accountability of users, explore the potential of raising penalties for current offences and review the powers available to law enforcement agencies to enforce the law.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the flying of drones near sensitive sites is already prohibited. Government has been undertaking a programme of work aimed at improving our defences against drones, with a focus on sensitive and important locations and events. This includes exploration of technological options to detect and counter drones, with trials and demonstrations taking place in order to examine the applicability of various technological options to do so.</p> more like this
