You don't have to worry about the safety of buying bottled water from a random stranger on The Strip, anymore. That's because peddlers have been banned from Las Vegas Boulevard.
Earlier today, government officials voted to make "it a misdemeanor for people to stand on sidewalks and sell bottled water, T-shirts and other items to passers-by," according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Hooters water is cleaner than some others out there.
Folks, no matter how thirsty you are during your trip to Vegas or how stubborn you are to pay $7 for bottled water from the minibar--do not, we repeat, do not buy bottled water from someone standing out on the Strip.
You know the people we are talking about. They cart little coolers behind them with handwritten signs saying, "Bottled Water, $1.25" (or less.) The more aggressive ones wave the bottles in your face as you walk by. Yes, these cold water bottles look mighty tempting when the desert heat and your killer hangover have sweating like a whore in church while at the same time practically choking back cottonmouth. But don't do it.
"I've had people complain about the water bottles. They are not sealed and even filled in the restroom," said County Commissioner Steve Sisolak. If spotted by police, people peddling water bottles will usually get cited. But then they will just move to a different location.
