Mother of all glare bombs

Mother of all glare bombs

A "star shower" laser device in a garden, seen from the pavement of the street. Three years ago these devices were still a specialty, meanwhile they are in Advent ubiquitous.

I see them specified as no less than Class 2, i.e. considered save to the eye only on the foundation of the assumption that no one will look into the beam for more than a quarter of a second (which should, as recent German research indicates, not be taken for granted). So it really surprises me that it is considered acceptable to design devices that could very quickly throw Class 2 laser beams into public area. Is it the assumption that any traffic will pass the beam so quickly that no blinding will occur?

A light like those should be directed at a wall, or up into a tree, or straight down into the yard.
It certainly shouldn't be pointed out into the street like this

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
