No Kissing Zone

0

At Warrington Bank Quay Station in the UK there are designated places for travelers to kiss, and not to kiss.  Taxi drivers complained about kissing couples taking too long in the drop-off zone, so Colin Daniels, the chief executive of the Warrington Chamber of Commerce suggested putting up No Kissing signs to prevent traffic congestion.

So now if you want to kiss, you have to go over to the Kissing Zone, several yards away from the drop-off area.  You can see the BBC News video here.

"It was all a bit of fun. But now Virgin Trains have agreed to put them up as part of the refurbishment. They may seem frivolous but there is a serious message underneath."

--Colin Daniels, Warrington Chamber of Commerce

So..this is an OLD thing that has been around for years. In Deerfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, these signs were installed thirty years ago.

"Deerfield station became nationally famous in 1979, when Deerfield village officials created a "No-Kissing Zone" at the station in response to complaints about traffic jams caused by couples taking too long to kiss their goodbyes at the drop-off point."
