Parking Lot Etiquette

1.  Common Courtesy/Zipper Merging

Extend the same courtesy you expect from others. Row traffic merging into a single lane exiting the site at the intersections will merge in an alternating flow. Please let row traffic merge into the main stream. Please allow vehicles exiting from parking areas to merge into the rows.

2.  Speed

The speed limit in the parking lot is 15 km/h. Exceeding this limit at the end of the shift to get ahead of the crowd puts pedestrians and other drivers at an unnecessary risk.

3.  Pedestrians

Make use of designated walkways. When possible and safe to do so, walk between the rows of parked cars. NO RUNNING IN PARKING LOT!

4.  Enforcement

NWR uses surveillance video across the site including the parking lot. NWR staff and security also monitor activity in the parking lot. Individuals choosing to ignore the rules or put their co-workers at risk will lose their parking privileges and may also lose site access privileges.
