Less than two months after the tragic mass shooting that left 58 people dead, a Las Vegas official wants the city to look at closing down a portion of the famed casino strip to private vehicles.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal said the idea is being floated by Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani.
"We really need to look at how you move someone much more safely, especially given what happened with the shooting, because we had difficulty getting emergency vehicles through," Giunchigliani said.
Her suggestion would ban private vehicles from the road from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, where a shooter gunned down victims from his room, all the way to the Stratosphere.
Only pedestrians, buses and taxis would be able to cruise the area.
She said it would relieve traffic congestion, pedestrian safety and allow for better access to first responders, the newspaper reported.
Meanwhile, workers have started installing 4-foot-tall posts along the roadway to protect pedestrians from any vehicle-ramming attacks.
And the Los Angeles Times reported multiple lawsuits have now been filed claiming the Mandalay Bay Hotel, as well as others, did not do enough to prevent the shooting.
