ensure you're not accidentally pelting an entire city with the equivalent of a few dozen A-10 strafing runs

The concept of relative harm comes to mind.  Would you rather a bunch of metal rain down randomly at terminal or a targeted crater maker strike your city and turn it into a hot lake?

The former. The metal might not actually cause that many casualties if everybody is hunkering down.

That of course assumes everybody follows instructions instead of panicking and going crazy in the streets, doing collapse-of-civilization things (looting et al).
