'Butterball' operation pits cops dressed as turkeys against drivers who violate crosswalk laws


Seemingly, it shouldn’t be all that difficult for a motorist to spot a man in a crosswalk wearing a turkey suit.

But for drivers who don’t stop, the annual “Butterball One” operation in Las Vegas offers a tangible reminder of the city’s crosswalk laws—a $191 ticket. Motorcycle officers are standing by to write citations, in an effort to keep the pedestrian death-rate down, according to the Associated Press and the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

So far, 46 pedestrians have died in Clark County this year.
