Move ‘welcome’ sign to side of the road

Regarding the issue of safety at the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, you still have a chance to include the common-sense approach.

It was suggested at the county commission meeting that, just like the signs you can see and stop for a picture when you drive across many state lines, why not move the sign to either side of Las Vegas Boulevard South? Then, use the millions of dollars saved on pedestrian bridges, etc., to relocate bus benches with Regional Transportation Commission money.

  1. Las Vegas is a WORLD destination, and the sign's prominence on the center median is appropriate.

    The least expensive and least invasive action is to simply install PEDESTRIAN CROSSWALKS AND SIGNALS in the sign's location.

    The writer does NOT provide examples nor statistic related to such tourist's signage here nor other WORLD destinations. Providing clear and concise information is vital for this conversation and decision making.

    Blessings and Peace,
