Lasers are a big problem in Tampa.

You’ve read about laser strikes right here on this page. Just a month ago, a man was arrested for sitting in his garage and aiming a small laser at a police aircraft.

The sad part is, that’s nowhere near the first time it’s happened. According to WFLA, there have now been 56 confirmed cases of lasers being aimed at airborne planes and helicopters in 2021 alone.

That’s more than once a week. While Florida has always been a bad place for laser strikes against aircraft, it’s gotten even worse recently.

No one has been immune to the attacks, whether they are commercial or private aircraft. Even police and emergency aircraft have been victimized.

Many people misunderstand why a laser is so dangerous. When the laser hits the plexiglass windshield of an aircraft, it refracts and covers the entire area, making it practically impossible to see.

The entire cockpit is filled with intense green light, temporarily blinding the pilot and co-pilot. When a laser strike is detected, air traffic is diverted until the suspect is apprehended, which is thankfully very quickly.

Most laser strikes happen in the fall and winter, especially in the area around airports, where the aircraft are at low altitude. If you are caught aiming a laser at an aircraft, you could spend up to 5 years in prison.

There were 6,852 documented laser attacks in America last year.

Foo Fighters: Their 40 Best Songs


Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
