To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to tackle the incidence of people shining laser pens at transport operators.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 22 February 2017

Police Scotland is responsible for investigating incidences of laser pens being shone at transport operators. We have not received representations from transport operators or Police Scotland about laser pens and would encourage any transport operator to report incidences to Police Scotland for investigation.
