Ramp Marshall Hand Signals
      04/01/17 02:01 PM

Terry, when I was in the Fire Police, I learned first hand how hand signals
must be clear and unambiguous to the person you are signalling.

I was directing traffic at an accident scene when a state trooper walked up
to me and said, "I've got it," and began directing the traffic. So I stepped
aside.

Soon he thrust out his clenched fist at a stream of oncoming motorists. Then
he became very agitated and started waving his arms. I finally figured out
his clenched fist meant, "Hold it." Never saw that before. When I want
someone to stop, I put out my hand, fingers up and palm toward the person.
Depending on the conditions, I might face the person, feet apart and both
arms up in the air, palms toward the person. That never failed to stop them.

Never saw the clenched fist used again, except when a motorist waved it at
me, showing his displeasure at being delayed. <g>
