My opinion is that all slow moving vehicles should be removed from
the roads. If these trucks are just going slow to promote their
advertisers, I think you should fine the truck drivers, the truck owners
and the content provider and that will stop the traffic problems.

Personally I think these adult type advertisement is the last resort
for desperate companies and i make sure i never attend any business
advertised on those trucks. I hate anyone that would slow traffic
and if that is how they want to advertise they lost my business.

I hate those slow moving trucks, get rid of them. Fine the
truckers and get them off the street. Paul Hargraves
I think the should be allowed but only during off peak hours not.
not during lunch or at 5:00 at night when the srip is the busiest.
No, I belive that driving up and down the strip only contributes to
air pollution and wastes fuel. The content on the signs does not bother
me, but they should find another way of advertising. Scot Stuber
Either ban them from the strip or require them to have a license to
operate. Billboards have rules, these useless traffic blockers should,
too. Greg Palm Bay, FL
I can understand why they drive the strip. They want your business.
But the Hotels pay a lot for their land. to keep the strip a class act.
No I don't think the moving bill boards should be allowed.

I feel the billboard trucks should not be allowed. The traffic flow
is bad enough without them. It would be beneficial to both residents &
visitors if they were not allowed. As far as content, I personally do
Not find them offending but they do not persuade me to take advantage
either. They are really advertising something illegal in the county.
Possibly that is one way to get them banned. Edward L Schulz
Get them off the streets! Can you imagine the gridlock when the
economy gets better and more people travel to Las Vegas. If you don't
know what's going on, ask! You should need a billboard to tell you what
show is playing, how you can get laid or where the strip club is...Ask
the sponsors how much money their making vs. how much their spending.
proof should be in the numbers. Rich West Boylston
Absolutely not, not because of their content as Vegas is an adult
playground, but mainly due to the traffic conditions. There are plenty
of other means of advertising for these businesses and there is no need
to add them to the traffic mess that already exists. Larry
Williams Indianapolis, IN
no they shouldnt. they are polluting. stephanie
This was in a poll before, and my answer is still No. If Vegas wants
more people with famlies to visit, those slow moving trucks are an eye
soar. How would you like your teen seeing that? Anyhow I wonder why
people who drive there for a living have not compained it must be a
pain! Alan Wagner Sheboygan Wi.
I don't think they should be allowed because of all the tourist
traffic. It really just causes a lot of trafiac jams. We do not have
children that we take to Las Vegas but a lot of people do and we do not
think some of these billboard trucks have adult content that is not fit
for children to see. It is in very poor taste for such a grand place as
Las Vegas. We visit there two or three times a year and love the festive
atmosphere but can absolutely do without billboard trucks slowing
traffic. Peggy Miller Danville, Illinois
From a traffic perspective, as a Las Vegas local, I feel these are a
nuisance. Traffic on the strip should be the tourists. I say levy a
large license fee on billboard vehicles to cruise the strip. This should
limit them severely. From a morality perspective: The majority of
images and messages are suggestive of prostitution. Exclusion of these
messages should be conditional for licensing. Prostitution is not legal
in Las Vegas and we should not tempt our guests with it. Kenne
Flickstein Las Vegas, NV
The obivious answer is No. The visiters that go to Las Vegas are on
borrowed time, and there for a short visit, and ones time is very
precious. Slow traveling billboards on trucks interferes slowing down
traffic. It isn't something one looks forward having to deal with. The
hotels have enough lights, signs, and Ads to entice people to visit and
participate. Peggy Rodriguez Los Angeles, CA
It's better than being hounded by individuals snapping cards at you
on the side walk. You dont have to look. Tom Harnishfeger
Take those slow moving death traps off the road and let us tourists
spend our money. I cannot believe someone is stupid enough to
allow these slow moving vehicles delay traffic. Robert Rose
