Drones are dangerous

While drone makers, the Congress as well as federal and local law enforcement agencies cheer for more drones in American skies, the  Washington Post points out that U.S. operated drones are crashing around the world:
Among the problems repeatedly cited are pilot error, mechanical failure, software bugs in the “brains” of the aircraft and poor coordination with civilian air-traffic controllers.
Any guesses how drones will work out when operating out of crowded American airports or are flying in large numbers over highly populated U.S. cities?
