Many Engineers and Managers we work with focus the majority of what they do on easing the areas with the highest levels of traffic. For many this comes down to high traffic areas like parking lots and lobbies. Eliminating log jams not only help in these areas it tends to increases the eased of flow of traffic everywhere else.
Wherever a traffic log jam exists can cause secondary problems that may not be apparent. Solving congestion issues in parking lots and lobbies solves unseen problems. If the signs where people park their cars are unclear or difficult to understand there could be a delay in parking. Parking delays often make someone late for an appointment. If the signage in a common area or lobby directing them to their destination is unclear they may be further delayed. These delays impact the schedule of the person they’re scheduled to meet with. The impacts are many and often detrimental to the organization.
The sign I’m sharing uses the term “No Stopping Or Standing”. Standing doesn’t mean what most people think it does. Standing refers to “the temporary stopping of a vehicle occupied or not, otherwise than temporarily, for the purpose of and while actively engaged in loading and unloading merchandise or passengers.” When you’re trying to ease the flow of people it’s always wise to use the easiest and most common definitions. Changing this sign to something like “No Stopping Except For Loading And Unloading Passengers” is much more clear, gives you a better chance of being understood and a better chance to decrease traffic.
