Teams are setting up the very first set of bollard safety posts along the southern portion of the Las Vegas that are meant to keep pedestrians safe.

Authorities state the thick steel posts can withstanding impact from a 15,000-pound lorry travelling at 55 miles per hour.

The new precaution comes after drivers plowed down pedestrians in New York and Barcelona, Spain.

It is also in action to a 2015 occasion where cops say a female driver intentionally drove onto the walkway, hitting 37 people and killing one.

Teams began setting up the posts early Monday and will continue working each weekday from midnight to 11 a.m.

. They state it will take several months to install the initial 800 bollards.

Another 7,500 bollards will be installed next year.

Are you ready to party like it’s 1983 with Steel Panther?

They simply do not celebration like they performed in the ’80s … unless we’re speaking about Steel Panther. The hair metal revivalists continue their residency at the House of Blues Las Vegas while recovering and forth to LA to play the famous Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip. “The most important thing is that we bring the celebration any place we go, actually revive exactly what the ’80s was like whether we’re in Vegas or LA,” bassist Lexxi Foxx states.

The campy rockers do not hold back in re-creating their category’s age of glory. When it’s time to go back to the Vegas phase, there’s definitely a Steel Panther Sin City regimen.

“We’ll have a couple beers on the airplane just to get rid of the night before, then a limo picks us up,” says Foxx. “Normally I’ll hit the tanning booth while Stix [Zadinia] starts signing some drum heads– we offer those to support our drug routine. [Guitarist] Satchel has a location in Vegas, so sometimes we go to his place and celebration, and his mom still lives there, which is cool. Then it’s time to head down to soundcheck, most likely do another shot and beer and get to it.”

The band has carried out all over Las Vegas for years, so there are numerous pals and fans searching for some Panther when the show is over. “The afterparty normally concerns us, unless there are some brand-new clubs to check out or strip clubs we have to begin knocking out,” he says. “In some cases we’ll go over to [Pantera drummer] Vinnie Paul’s house, which is bitchin’, and Carrot Top has a pretty cool J├Ągermeister bar setup backstage at Luxor. If you’re lucky, you can find us at the big [casino] bar at Mandalay Bay after the program.” Steel Panther at your home of Blues at Mandalay Bay, August 25 & & September 1.
