Sometimes it’s the little things that count. At Detroit Airport, and apparantly in San Jose as well, there is now a special lane for cars waiting to pick people up known as the “Cell Phone Lane”. The idea is that instead of circling endlessly in bumper to bumper traffic, you pull in to this special lane a fair distance from the terminal, and wait for a call. That’s smart and saves a fair amount of emissions and headaches alike. Ideally, they should put up a sign saying “if you’re here for more than 30 seconds you should turn of your motor alltogether”. No word on that. Via Gizmodo.
