Seems that Texas lawmakers are a little concerned about the abusive use of spy drones by civilians. They’ve passed a law to restrict their use.
And here I thought that Harris County, Texas, one of the most abusive clusters of HOAs in the country, would be able to use drone cameras to peek inside the property and homes of HOA members to see if there were any covenant violations!
Six other states have passed anti-drone laws, but according to Fox News NY Texas legislators were especially concerned about private citizens and public entities who could use drones to eyeball what was going on in private bedrooms.
Still, as we’ve learned over the past year’s worth of federal spying scandals, privacy is a thing of the past. Despite privacy laws, they’re listening, they’re peeking, they’re photographing, they’re going through your trash. Ah, and HOA board members are doing it, too.
