The Day's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I live near a deer crossing and they keep getting hit. It is too dangerous for the deer to cross where the deer crossing sign is now. Should I advise the county to move the sign somewhere else?

Answer: On behalf all of the deer who were hit after relying upon that ill-placed sign, I thank you. (Tosh.0 Blog, Dangerous Deer Crossing)

2) Question: I am a seismologist and I failed to predict a massive, fatal earthquake. In my defense, no major quake has ever been predicted successfully. Is this going to be a problem?

Answer: In some countries, failing to predict an earthquake can get you charged with manslaughter. (FOX News, Italian Seismologists Charged With Manslaughter for Not Predicting 2009 Quake)

3) Question: I gave my 8-year-old son a cheap laser pointer and he likes to point it at planes as they fly overhead. Should I take away his allowance?

Answer: Yes, until you have accumulated $11,000, which is the maximum amount of the Federal Aviation Administration's new fine for people who shine a laser into the cockpit of an aircraft. (Law and Disorder, Shine a laser at a plane, face an $11,000 fine)
