If you don’t want to pay $179,933, then don’t bring your Note 7 to a plane
This week, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was banned to be carried in any US flights. However, if you don’t care about the new restriction and decide to carry one, then congratulations. You just commit a federal crime.
The new prohibition was ordered by FAA and restricts any passengers to carry a Note 7 with them. It doesn’t matter if the phone is in your pocket or inside your bag. In anyways, the passenger will not be allowed to board a plane.
But if you happen to have a Note 7 with you in a plane, there are some penalties. “Any person failing to comply with this Order is subject to civil penalties of up to $179,933 for each violation for each day they are found to be in violation (49 U.S.C. 5123). A person violating this Order may also be subject to criminal prosecution, which may result in fines under title 18, imprisonment of up to ten years, or both (49 U.S.C. 5124).”
As a result, there is no advantages of carrying a Note 7 with you. You are not only putting your life at danger, but as well as putting other’s lives at a danger.
