I was shocked to read about laser beams being used to blind aircraft pilots. Radio 702 reported there has been 180 incidents reported in the last 24 months. The laser device, which is banned, can reach up to 80Km. That's really scary. More recently, there have also been reports in George, where motorists have been blinded by the same device.

Its good advice not to be caught with such a device. It can be regarded as extremely dangerous.
