San Francisco International Airport is looking at employing anti-drone technology, according to a report from KCBS radio. 

The drones show up in airspace around the airport about once a month and a present a safety hazard. Several other airports are grappling with the issue

Other local agencies are also taking on drones. The Golden Gate Bridge District, Golden Gate National Recreation Area and other jurisdictions have banned drones from airspace, citing safety and privacy concerns.

"Beyond the nuisance they may pose to other visitors, our primary concern is for public safety and protection of park resources," the GGNRA notes on its website. Drone users are subject to a citation of $125 plus fees at the national recreation area.
