[Reader Submitted] To whom this may concern. I was driving yesterday on (moderated), when I suddenly was blinded by a green laser shining into my face. The light caused me to turn my head to see what was going on, nearly driving into the oncoming lane.
I don’t know who it was shining the laser, but I would imagine it was a kid playing around, as I heard from a friend of mine afterwards, who had a similar experience with a kid.
Now I don’t know if this is a new game for children, but it’s sure a dangerous one.
This message I have for the parents of these children, is as follows:
Pointing lasers at drivers can be very hazardous, and so I ask of you that you please keep a close eye on your children as they handle these ‘toys’.
