    If I click on it, would that constitute a geiger sanction?

    It's a pretty basic Geiger Counter as it only measures Counts Per Minute which is pretty useless as it is not giving you a measurement in either REMs or Sieverts, it is only good at measuring relative exposure rates.

    Radiation Levels Near Fukushima Plant Extremely High
    A Japanese news agency has reported that radiation more than six-thousand times the standard level has been detected within the 20-to-30-kilometer radius of the Fukushima Number One nuclear power plant. It is the area where residents are required to take shelter indoors.

    15.5 is nearly twice 9.15 but it still doesn't tell you what you're measuring. Either way it is better to be where the count is 9 than 15.
