Police officers have begun informing people on the new ordinance prohibiting so-called "dangerous objects" on the Las Vegas Strip.
A spokesperson with Clark County said officers began handed out flyers summarizing the new law in the first two to three weeks of its inception. The ordinance went into effect on Oct. 30.
After the information phase, officers will proceed with warnings, followed by citations for repeat offenders, the county said.
According to Clark County Code, the ban includes, but is not limited to, electrical cords, wires, fire, fireworks, swords, knives, skateboards, even power generators and batteries.
The ban is in effect on Las Vegas Boulevard South and certain adjoining areas, the code says.
The misdemeanor offense is punishable by a fine up to $1,000 and/or up to six months in jail.
