The hallways are a mad house at school. With all students following the same bells, there is a wave of activity in the hall after every class. Thinking about how traffic works on the road, some might think that everyone would walk smoothly. However this is not the case, there are a number of things causing these problems in the hallways that could be solved.

“I hate walking around the halls! I hate when people bump into me and I hate when I get pushed or shoved. It really is a big problem,” senior Austyn Beckstead said.

One of the main reasons why there are huge traffic jams is the people that stop in the middle of the hallway. Certain areas of the school always have an expected group of people to be either standing around blocking the way, or even taking up a whole side of a staircase. This causes major space issues inside the hallway.

“Groups should move to the side so that others can move by, things would go much smoother,” sophomore Haven Cafferty said.

With so many students all using the same places, there really is no room for people to stop the flow of traffic. If students all did their part to keep the crowd moving, getting from class to class would be a breeze.
