LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers are trying to make the streets a little safer this Thanksgiving and they're using a turkey to do it.

Officers are highlighting one of the most dangerous streets for pedestrians in the valley by having a person in a turkey suit walk across it.


Police say if you can't see a turkey crossing Flamingo Road near Mojave what are the chances that you can see a pedestrian?

Officers gave 123 citations and one impaired driver was taken off the road.
