Get In The Know: Traffic Safety Rules For Your Event

If you’re at an event, one of the most important things you can do is to observe the traffic safety rules that govern the area. By doing this, you not only ensure the smooth flow of commerce at your event (always good for your bottom line) but you ensure the safety and security of all of the guests that may attend the event. After all, it doesn’t do anyone any good if your event quickly descends into one of the big chases from the “Fast and the Furious” movies.

  • Study the area - Before you do anything, it is an imperative that you get a good bit of intelligence on what type of traffic you’re going to be dealing with. So, study the area and the parameters of the event. Figure out where the cars are going to be going, and what kind of obstacles they might encounter. Plan out where you might run into barriers or traffic jams, and figure out how they can be avoided.
  • Know the rules - Each state and each local community has a varied set of rules that might govern what you can do and where you can do it. It’s another imperative that you familiarize yourself with these unique rules and make sure to follow them at your event.
  • Use traffic safety materials - Materials like barriers, cones and delineators that can be bought at a traffic safety store can funnel the traffic for the event exactly to where it needs to be. A traffic safety store with a good track record will ease your woes.
  • Ensure that there is plenty of parking - Nothing can lead to chaos faster than a lack of parking; not having it can cause some severe breakdown within the event. By ensuring that you have enough parking at the event, you can make sure that all your attendees are safe - and happy.

    And before you go shaking your head in the belief that you have plenty of parking space at your event, never...underestimate...the...general...public!

     

  • Work with the professionals - This is an excellent idea for any sort of event where you’ll have to deal with traffic. Your own staff is likely highly trained and very competent, but at the end of the day they’re still your own staff - and they may not have the skill and mobility it takes to effectively manage the traffic you’ll have to deal with. Of course, every event, and every staff is different - so take those into account - but it might not hurt you to try to bring in some true professionals for the event.
  • Contact your local law enforcement agency, they can be found here, to see what sort of support they can provide. Investigate professional security and support firms to explore whether they can potentially help out with the event. It may cost you a little bit of money, but the smooth payoff in the end could prove worth it.

  • Make sure your staff is well-informed - As you continue to develop your intelligence report for the event, it’s vital that you let your staff in on what you’re learning. If you’re relying on your staff to develop and manage the event, it’s vital that they’re as well-informed as you are.
