Las Vegas sends a message to tourists and locals: Hey, I'm walkin' here
A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

So if you get in the way of anyone trying to walk on a pedestrian bridge on the Strip, you could face a $1,000 fine or six months in jail. Now, the new rule comes just in time for Vegas to host a Super Bowl, so maybe this will keep any blocking inside the stadium. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
