Norway opens ‘kiss’n’drive’ lanes
A Norwegian hospital has created special “kiss and drive” lanes to allow its staff to kiss loved ones goodbye without blocking ambulances.
St Olav’s Hospital – in the central city of Trondheim – came up with the idea after tiring of the traffic jams near the emergency entrance caused by nurses and doctors canoodling in cars with their spouses before rushing to work.
“A kiss is a good way to start the day,” says the hospital’s brochure that also urges its estimated 5,500 employees not to “get in the way” while they doing it.
Pink hearts are painted on the asphalt to indicate the lanes built on both sides of the road next to the building.
The lanes end about 400 metres from the hospital’s emergency entrance, clearing up the way for ambulances , hospital officials say
“It is important to ease access for patient transport and visitors,” hospital spokeswoman Marit Kvikne told the Associated Press news agency.
“Staff are encouraged to use the kissing lane on their way to and from work,” Ms Kvikne added.
