A hot air balloon is certainly a serene and peaceful way to enjoy a bird's eye view of nature at its best. There are many factors, however, that can contribute to a less than tranquil ride. A skilled balloon pilot who understands the meteorological and geographic variables will improve the chances of a trouble free landing.

Balloon pilots must be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) since the aircraft pose a risk to general aviation and commercial airplanes if operated improperly.

-- Petition Denied
http://www.balloonlife.com/webarch/petition.htm
In April 1991, the Federal Aviation Administration denied the Balloon Federation of America's petition to revise FAR §91.119, minimum safe altitudes. The following was the FAA's reasoning in turning down the petition:
"Section of the FAR affected:

"Section 91.119(b) prescribes that no person may operate an aircraft over any congested area of a city, town, or settlement at an altitude of less than 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2,000 feet of the aircraft.

"Section 91.119(c) prescribes that no person may operate an aircraft over other than congested areas at an altitude of less than 500 feet above the surface, except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In that case the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500 feet to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure. . .
