Learning not to be too bright in Las Vegas …

Lasvegas   Use, height, and area are the three features of land most traditionally regulated by land use law.  What about brightness?  Las Vegas, that center of dazzling architecture, is considering tougher limits on the intensity and flashing of its ubiquitous signs, especially in order to avoid distractions for drivers. 

   We live in a world of increasing visual distractions, in everything from the wattage levels indoors (today’s interiors are far brighter than they were 70 years ago) to an increasingly distracting ads on internet sites.  But it seems that one realm in which law should impose some visual quiet is on the road.
