Drones to be restricted on Mackinac Island
MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — Mackinac Island is restricting drones amid worries that such unmanned aircraft may startle the island’s horses and interfere with its historic charm.
The Detroit News reports the restriction is expected to go into effect July 26 requiring visitors and residents on the northern Michigan island to seek permission from officials before flying drones.
Potential drone operators will need to request a permit before flying their devices. Violators could be subject to a fine.
