Question:
New Years Eve is less than four weeks away and nearly 1 million people will visit Las Vegas during that week. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Do you think it is good or bad to block off the Las Vegas Strip and let the people roam the streets on New Years? Why or Why Not?
Reader Poll Replies:

* I think they should not allow people in the streets, that is just asking for problems.  Gloria IA

Seems to me that it would be very hard to keep security in line with thousand of people roaming the strip, so I guess I would think it is a bad idea.  Hank T.  TN

I think it would be a great Idea to block the strip from motor vehicle use. The Strip is congested enough on a regular day let alone on weekends. With New Years Eve falling on a Saturday this year, The crowds will be large. Since it is not illegal to have beverages outside and you can walk around with them, I think it would be a great idea to have all the Strip Hotels
sponsor a giant street party the length of the Strip from Tropicana to Sahara. Each hotel can have alcohol and food stands set up. Bands can be playing. That would be awesome if it would happen. By the way, I will be in Vegas, not for New Year's Eve, but a couple weeks later. This will be the 30th year our group has come out in January. I also come out in the spring or summer. I really enjoy Vegas and would love to move there some year.  Chuck Merica

* Closing the Strip to auto/bus/taxi traffic for New Years creates new promotional opportunities. Street vendors and performance artists, adult beverage kiosks, and games resulting in gifts or show tickets. An atmosphere crafted to resemble Mardi Gras in what's left of the French Quarter. Like the Fremont Street Experience without the claustrophobic ceiling. Horse and pedal carriages winding through the crowds like they do on Main Street in Disneyland. Police in bright yellow jackets with their bicycles keeping order, augmented by casino security to haul offenders to the rear of the buildings, to disappear via Koval or Industrial. Prime Directive: If they're not going to be inside spending money, give them the
opportunity to spend it outside. Las Vegas New Years Collectable Beads.  Start a new tradition.  Don in Portland

* I personally think it is a great idea to block off the strip to vehicles and let people have the whole strip to themselves to wander and party. Traffic is an absolute night mare on the strip, especially during the summer months when you have the most tourist traffic. I think for this one night, everyone should park theirs cars, get out and walk, or take the monorail and enjoy the strip without having to worry about possibly being hit by a fast moving car. There are other entrances that taxi's and vehicles can use rather than the entrances from the strip. It's a great Idea.  JDW - Seattle, Washington

I think it is a good idea, because people will do it anyhow! Also, by having it blocked off, there is less likely of pedestrian/automobile accidents.  George Gryak
