Tampa, Florida - The "Stripper Mobile" is designed to get attention, and now it's caught the eye of the police. Andrea Davis with the Tampa Police Department tells 10 Connects they're taking a look at the controversial vehicle to make sure it doesn't violate any laws.

"Our attorney is looking at the way (the dancers are) dressed and obviously some of the gestures that they are doing (to see) if that is a violation of some sort of city ordinance or state law." Davis said. But she added so far it doesn't appear the "Stripper Mobile" has violated any laws.

When asked if it was necessary for the dancers to be wearing seat belts, Davis said officials didn't think so, but added police are still checking into that.

The "Stripper Mobile" is owned by Déjà Vu, a gentlemen's club located on East Adamo Drive.  The vehicle with Plexiglas sides and a stripper pole inside arrived in Tampa after it was banned in Las Vegas.

The general manager at Déjà Vu tells 10 Connects they're only taking the vehicle out at night, between 10 P.M. and 2 A.M. in areas like Ybor and Channelside.

One thing police are concerned about is gawkers. Davis said officials worry the "Stripper Mobile" will distract other drivers. "We'd hope the business would be a little bit more responsible and know that this could create some type of hazard that would create an accident," Davis said.
