Drone buzzing Fenway Park a ‘wake-up call’ for Congress to act

The drone that buzzed Fenway Park is a “wake-up call” to Congress to regulate the unmanned aircraft before there’s a tragedy, two former police commissioners told the Herald.

The warning comes just days before the 123rd running of the Boston Marathon — where drones have been banned by the Federal Aviation Administration.

“At the moment, this is a mess. Nobody has the authority to take drones down,” said William J. Bratton, a former police commissioner in Boston and New York City and former chief of police in Los Angeles. “I’m willing to bet there will be drone incursions over the marathon. It’s worrisome."
