Why Did Turkey Cross Street?

Las Vegas police officer Mike Lemley, dressed in a turkey costume, crosses the street at the intersection of Balzar Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard in Las Vegas, Tuesday. The giant turkey is roving crosswalks in Las Vegas to squawk on drivers who don't yield to pedestrians. It's the fifth annual appearance of the safety mascot dubbed "Butterball One." Police waiting to the sides of the crosswalks are slapping drivers who don't stop with fines starting at $191. (AP Photo/Las Vegas Metropolitan Police: Steve Crupi)
