Stand on one side and keep the other side clear so that people in a hurry can walk through
Most of the time people don't follow, prefer to stand side by side so that can talk
Walao escalator a few seconds only also want to talk, so much to talk? You talk in front the person behind also can hear one mah......

That is reason the word 'excuse me' is created for.

We must be understanding. Other than usual locals, most people actually do not know it and maybe, some of them might overlooked it.

Isn't that how we should use the escalator?
If you need to climb to reach the higher ground, please proceed to the stairs.

Back at the end of 2015, the Transport for London (TfL) — the agency that oversees public transit in the city and cautions everyone to mind the gap — decided to disrupt the natural order of things for three weeks and instructed hurried London commuters going up and out of Holborn Tube Station (about a 77-foot journey) if they could stand on both sides of escalator. As this Guardian article about the experiment points out, this is a huge violation of British social norms, and the Brits do really love their social norms. Knowing that, TfL planted folks in the walking path on the left and asked any couples in the queue to stand next to each other and hold hands, all the better to thwart walkers.

The whole experiment proved two things. First, commuters were not happy with the new process, but after three weeks, they grew a bit "docile." Second, it was much, much more efficient for people to stand side-by-side up the escalator. In fact, an escalator that normally carried 12,745 people up to the street between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. brought up 16,220 in the same hour with people standing side-by-side.

That is almost 3,500 more people in an hour who got out from underneath London and on their way to their destination sooner than they would have with the split-use escalator.

You talking about long travel escalators like those found inLRT stations or a simple short travel one in shopping malls? If inside malls, I’ll say just give in lah and let them hog both sides. Enjoy the travel on the escalator while you’re still young.

Research has shown it isn't really worth it to let people walk on one side. It's dangerous and even China is banning this practice. It's especially a problem in Hong Kong. I just came back from that place and many times accidents almost happen when people just rush through 1 side of the escalator.

Got ask. First by highlight. Buat tak tahu. Highlight again. Nothing happen. Short honk. Nothing happen. Second short honk, nothing. Long honk, still no give way. Why? Because speed limit 90kmh only, no need to give way, says some /k.

Edit: talking about when no car in front of that car
Drive 80kmh at right lane too.

Escalator function as the name suggest is to escalate you up.

You are supposed to step on it and let it escalate you up. If you are hurry, can tell front person to let you pass.
