TULSA (AP) — Tulsa International Airport officials are considering implementing a collection zone around the facility's baggage carousels.

If the system is put into place, the Tulsa airport would be one of the first in the U.S. to create such a collection zone. Rick Hudson, a member of the city's utility board, came up with the idea of establishing a 3-foot to 4-foot collection zone around the carousels.

"I think this is definitely something very easy to implement that can bring civility to an uncivilized experience," Hudson said.

Airport Trustee Dewey Bartlett said when he proposed Hudson's idea to the airport's director, it received an initial positive response. Bartlett said the idea would work "if people honor the line" around the carousels.

Hudson frequently travels internationally and said the baggage collection systems at most airports are "stupid."

"When the baggage comes up the conveyor and onto the baggage carousel, everyone crowds around the carousel so that you can't see your baggage when it comes out," he said, "and when you do spot it, you have to push people out of the way to get it. The system just brings out the worst behavior in people."

Hudson said the idea of the collection zone came during a visit to an airport in Stockholm, Sweden, where he saw a yellow line with the word "Stop" on it around a baggage carousel.

"I was amazed at how civilized everyone acted," he said. "Everyone stood behind the yellow line, and they waited for their bags to arrive. After they retrieved one bag, they took it behind the yellow line and waited for their other bag."

Bartlett said it would not cost much to implement a similar system at the Tulsa airport, noting it would only take paint and a brief period of monitoring until passengers learned the new system.
