Stop Passing on the Left

Article Summary: 

The TTC removed signs encouraging pedestrians to stand-right and walk-left in the subway system in 2007 and escalators date back to 1900. However, there are attempts to change this thinking, such as the Nanjing, China subway system's campaign to change standard escalator behaviour, the London Tube's decision to stand on both sides of an escalator, and the Alberta Motor Vehicle Association's "It's OK to cheat – in fact AMA encourages it!" campaign. However, many are concerned about appearing rude by not allowing others to pass. The increasing urbanization of our city will require some changes.
