Comment Window Tint? (Score 1) 445

Taking the pay someone to snitch approach is novel, but how hard would it be for Johnny A-hole neighbor to point the laser, then point the finger at someone else just to get his 10K.

We can't stop A-holes from doing dumb shit, so here's an idea:

How about putting a special reflective mask/window tint over the cockpit windows that blocks coherent light (aka, the "Frickin' LASERs"). I know this must be rocket science because it hasn't been done. I'm no inventor or I would have done this already, so don't flame me. I'm just putting this out as a suggestion.
