Solution needed for hallway blockage in schools

To the Editor, I am writing about my feelings toward hallway traffic in public schools. I believe that we should be taught at an early age that people drive on the right side of the road so we can apply the concept to walking in hallways. Also, I believe that we should be taught to not stop in the middle of the hallway like cars do not stop in the middle of the road for no reason unless there is an emergency or they have to turn. I believe that this would make hallways safer and easier to move around in.
