We love to talk about beach etiquette in the office during the summer months. Whether it be something that someone saw on the boardwalk, beach or town – there are lots of things that locals and vacationers need to keep in mind during their stay. Its been such a fun topic we’ve featured some tips on our weekly newsletter to our guests.
OCNJdaily just compiled a list of suggestions that are pretty spot on for most beach towns but OCNJ in particular. The whole no food for seagulls is always something at the top of my list because those birds totally freak me out. Safety is at the top of my list though because towns are so busy and vacationers still need to think about cars etc. while relaxing at the beach. These are my favorite:
- If you are a pedestrian and not ready to cross a street, stand away from the crosswalk, so cars can proceed.
- If you are a pedestrian and ready to cross a street, stand in the crosswalk, so cars know your intention.
- If you are using a crosswalk, respect the time and patience of the motorists who are waiting for you to cross.
- If you’re a pedestrian at an intersection with a traffic light, remember to follow the signal. You don’t have the right of way as you would at a crosswalk.
- If you’re a motorist, know that you must stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
