News story: Tougher laser misuse laws come into force

first_imgnew penalties for those targeting lasers at vehicle operators come into force today laws seek to protect passengers and operators from growing concern of lasers 5 years in prison and unlimited fines now an option for worst offenders Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Lasers, used recklessly, can have very serious, potentially fatal consequences. This government has toughened up the law to crack down on this dangerous behaviour. These new laws offer greater protection for operators and passengers alike against irresponsible and reckless laser use. The public needs to recognise that lasers are not toys and shining one at an aircraft endangers all those on board and anyone on the ground. The police now have greater powers, and anyone caught could face 5 years in jail. This legislation removes the need for police officers to establish proof of intention to endanger so people will find it much harder to hide behind the claim they ‘did it by accident’. If you have bought a laser for your kids or have one that you don’t really need, we suggest you take the batteries out and throw it away. It’s not worth you, or someone close to you, getting a criminal record for the sake of what is mistakenly believed to be a toy. Aviation, Europe and technology media enquiries The tough new legislation was introduced in December and latest figures show the number of laser aviation incidents fell in March to the lowest levels since 2009.Head of Flight Safety at BALPA, Dr Rob Hunter said: New laws introducing tough penalties for people who target vehicles including train, planes, cars and boats with lasers come into force today (10 July 2018).The Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Act means that offenders will face much tougher penalties of up to 5 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.The act also expands the law to protect air traffic controllers carrying out important flight navigation work to keep people safe.And police and law enforcement now have more powers to catch and prosecute offenders as there is no longer a need to prove intention to endanger a vehicle.Baroness Sugg, Aviation Minister, said: Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 Switchboard 0300 330 3000last_img read more

This Week’s Picks: Bow to King Charles III, Megan Hilty & More!

first_img View Comments Enjoy Supergirl’s Broadway FlavorPremieres October 26 on CBSSupporting Broadway’s best means going beyond the stage. No, we don’t mean doing James Earl Jones’s taxes, cleaning Lesli Margherita’s kitchen or doing anything that will lead to a restraining order. Keep it simple and legal, like checking out the series premiere of Supergirl, which features two of our favorites, Laura Benanti and Jeremy Jordan. Oh, and here’s a bonus: the show looks pretty darn good! Hey, you, trying to decide between Sexy Joe Papp and Slutty Jean Valjean for Halloween. They are both horrible, terrible ideas. Your time would be better spent sampling what this glorious city has to offer, including a starry staged reading, a Broadway debut and Megan Hilty and Andy Karl in concert. Get ready for this week’s picks! Star Files Load Up with Megan HiltyOctober 27 and 28 at New York City CenterMegan Hilty and Andy Karl are everywhere these days; not that we’re complaining. What will we complain about: just two performances of Encores!’ Annie Get Your Gun concert, which stars these two dynamos. How do we get more, gods of Broadway? Would you like us to talk to our mom every day, stop making fun of tourists? We’re willing to listen—after we’re done enjoying what should be a rousing event. Click for tickets! See King Charles III BowOpens November 1 at the Music Box TheatrePeople either love the royal family like their own or would rather get a paper cut in the eye than read about their comings and goings. Leave it to Broadway to bridge that gap! Mike Bartlett’s King Charles III imagines a world in which Queen Elizabeth II dies, making Prince Charles the new king. The drama is also delivered in Shakespearean verse, which gives the modern-day tale even greater weight. Click for tickets! Meet Hamilton’s New King Begins October 27 at Richard Rodgers TheatreEverything is going right for Hamilton. Its devoted, high profile fan base includes the leader of the free world. The creator has been recognized as a genius. But, oh no!, Jonathan Groff is leaving (temporarily) to wrap up Looking. Thankfully, the supremely talented Andrew Rannells takes over as King George! Phew! Now if everyone in the cast could just stay in the show forever that would be great. Does that work for you, Lin? Click for tickets! Get Charitable with Wesley TaylorOctober 26 at New World StagesWe usually don’t promote readings, which conjure images of drafty gyms and folding chairs harder than nuclear physics. There are exceptions. First, if it’s charitable. Second, if the readings are short plays by Wesley Taylor, the actor your probably know from The Addams Family, Rock of Ages and Smash. Third, and finally, if the actors involved include Debra Messing, Nathan Lane and Stockard Channing. So, yeah, get going and support the Actors Fund. Click for tickets! Megan Hiltylast_img read more
