The problem would be: In a 60 story building people in floors 40 to 50 will tend to go up to catch the prioritized elevators than move down. But elevators are likely to be slow moving down as they have to evacuate a full floor before moving to the next, and it takes longer for elevator to get from 60 to ground than from 59 or 58 etc. to ground.

A possible work around is for elevator to only travel half the distance and get back. That way the incentive for people to go up the stairs is minimized and it takes less time for elevator to move down the floors.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Do you understand?

I don't trust in elevators, in any can fall down or fail, in earthquake can turn into real lethal traps, in definitely I prefer to use upstairs, is more healthy and safe.
