Vegas May Be Too Bright

Home to the bright lights and elaborate signage of Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada, may revise an ordinance to more effectively regulate the bright signs and displays that illuminate the Las Vegas Strip and other parts of the county.

"Clark County officials are considering a law that could dim lights on Strip marquees and other signs that blind or dazzle motorists - once someone figures out when bright is too bright."

"Local lighting industry officials say most Strip hotel marquees have sensors that keep their brightness in check by adjusting sign lights depending on conditions, such as changing sunlight."

"Current sign settings are well below the brightness limits being considered by the county, the illumination industry says."

"The county's current ordinance allows only signs that do not 'illuminate with such brilliance as to blind or dazzle the vision of travelers.' County officials admit they don't need an incandescent light bulb to go off in their heads to see how vague and unenforceable that measure is."
