Park service bans drones, at least temporarily

The National Park Service has banned, temporarily, the use of drones in all parks and areas it manages "until we can determine the most appropriate policy that will protect park resources and provide all visitors with a rich experience," NPS Director Jonathan Jarvis said in a news release.

The service had already banned drones in several parks because of visitor complaints, wildlife harassment and safety concerns. It cited examples, such as drones interrupting "a quiet sunset" at the Grand Canyon and the evening presentation at Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
