About time.

Federal Aviation Administration officials on Wednesday plan to announce they will impose civil penalties on people who point lasers into the cockpit of aircraft. [snip]

The maximum civil penalty the FAA can impose for violating the regulation is $11,000 per violation. [snip]

A Delta reported a laser the other night on short approach. It must be tough to capture these laser people.
