Londoners Intructed To Stand On Left Side of Escalator. Londoners Ignore Instruction Completely


Nothing brings Londoners together quite like tutting at a clueless tourist stood on the left side of an escalator. 

We pretend we’re annoyed, shaking our heads and willing for them to get get eaten by the escalator mechanism - but really, it’s a thankful moment of common ground that unites a silent, stressed-out city of strangers.

And that moment might soon be over, if TFL’s plan for a standing-only rule comes through.

They’ve been trialling the idea at Holborn underground for three weeks in a bid to improve congestion, following a similar experiment in November 2015 that reduced queuing by 30%.

But fuck stats. The people are angry, and they’ve taken to Twitter to show it.
