There are all sorts of different situations where crowd control becomes an important issue. It could be something so basic as showing people where to form a line at a bank or it could be a bigger deal like some sort of show or event.
I think we’ve all seen those stanchions that hold the velvet rope or belts to keep people where you want them and out of areas that are off limits. Stanchions are extremely effective methods of crowd control — in fact, I’ve even seen special event messages printed on the belts that stretch between stanchions to show people where to stand.
Now, for vehicles, you need to bump it up a notch and use barricades to show people where they can and cannot drive. There are lots of different barricades depending on the situation and the effect you want to create. You might choose fence barricades, traffic cones or even pipe and drape walls. The result is the same — motorists can see clearly where they should park and where they should drive.
Take the unknown out of crowd control and make it easy for people to cooperate with your plan.
