According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Centre in 2017, approximately one in every 10 Americans claimed that they owned a drone while three out of every five of them claimed that they had seen a drone carry out its phenomenal midair maneuvers.
However, in spite of an overwhelming number of people been exposed to drones, a vast majority of Americans are not enthralled by the idea of these electronic gizmos zipping through the air around them.
4,135 persons were interviewed by the Pew Research Centre in the summer of 2017. They were asked a wide array of questions regarding drones such as their sentiments when they were around them and the areas they perceived were appropriate for drone flights.
And the survey results came up with astounding pointers with regard to the opinions bulk of the American denizens held towards drones.
A massive majority of Americans discouraged the thought of drones flying near people’s homes, in the vicinity of crime scenes or over traffic accidents.
It is quite surprising that Americans are averse to drones despite them coming in handy in roof inspections and documentation of crime scenes. As a matter of fact, insurance companies are employing drones to monitor damage around homes and of course drones flying near homes is mandatory for the idea of package delivery through drones to be realized.
Most of the negative emotions regarding drones, however, emanate from older Americans. Two in every five of the people born from the 1980s onwards are against drones flying near homes while this opinion is agreed to by almost three out of every four of the people who were born from the 1940s onwards.
Here are the good tidings though: despite the fact that most Americans are not enthralled by the idea of drones flying near homes, most of them harbor positive sentiments of curiosity and interest when around them. Only one in every American is spooked to see a drone zipping through the sky around his or her home.
