Americans are NOT loving their National Parks to death (this tired old mantra has been repeated by extreme environmentalists for decades). In keeping with the globalist ideology of the U.S. National Park management corps, the article entirely misses the point! The experience in the big landscape parks is not being destroyed by too many Americans (citizen owners), but by mass foreign visitation (non-owner guests). What is new are the vast hordes of off-shore tourists, especially from Asia (China and India), that are crushing into the Parks. At prime destinations, 70% of the visitors in Yellowstone are now foreign guests, leaving American park owners to feel like they are visiting a foreign third-world country. More and more Americans are staying home rather than suffer the multi-faceted gauntlet posed by organized mass foreign tourism. When Americans cope by averting their attention from national parks it is an entirely preventable national tragedy. The solution to mass foreign tourism in the National Parks is obvious and can be implemented immediately! Require a U.S. driver’s license or passport at the gate. The solution will cost virtually nothing. Limiting foreign visitation to about 5% of visitors in any month is the only solution that will restore the national park experience for Americans and invite traditional citizen visitors back into their iconic landscapes.
Some schools in the United States have been reported to have abolished the use of lockers. Security concerns are cited as the reason for this, with the concern being that lockers may be used to store contraband items such as weapons or drugs or pornographic material. There has been some controversy over in what circumstances school authorities or law-enforcement officials are permitted to search lockers, with or without informing the users, or with or without the users being present at the time of the search, and it has been considered a civil liberties issue, particularly in the U.S.
There are a number of features or characteristics which may vary in lockers. Because purchasers will need to specify what they want in each of these when ordering, it is more common to order a particular configuration rather than buy "off the shelf" in a shop, although certain very common configurations can be found in shops fairly easily. These features include:
Number of locking points: Locker doors may lock with either single- or three-point locking, but this is not normally chosen as a separate option, and the choice is usually dependent on the number of tiers in the lockers, or whether they are a high-security model, although some manufacturers do allow purchasers to specifically choose an option here that goes against their normal practice. Single-point locking locks the door at only the point where the latch engages with the door-frame, whereas three-point locking uses extensible steel rods to lock the top and bottom of the door as well.

Clean/dirty lockers normally have two or three parts within the locker. One part is meant for dirty or clothes that are worn, and the other side for clean clothes. These lockers are meant for hospitals or other medical workplaces where it is useful to keep work and personal clothes apart to reduce the risk of infection. These lockers are also useful for factories where work clothes can become dirty and it can be very useful to keep them apart from personal clothes.

It’s not hard to see why many people prefer double lockers, they offer plenty of versatility and are a great way to provide spacious, top and bottom storage to employees, students and customers. You won’t miss out on much by choosing double tier as they feature interior hooks, a hat shelf in each and can be modified with additional shelves if you desire more organization. Some single users also choose to use both the top and bottom compartments, while simply using the center divider as a shelf.
One thing that box lockers can’t do that nearly all other styles of lockers can (depending on their height) is hang garments. Box lockers allow for a maximum number of units in a small space, but are too small to hang your jacket. Garment lockers utilize box lockers, and a coat rod is mounted under the lockers between the vertical sections. This allows for employees to hang full length garments, while still being able to secure their other personal items in their individual lockers.
