You’d think so, judging by my reaction when my kids come upon one and like to ride them incessantly. Then inevitably Security comes along and tells me to make them stop because escalators are dangerous.
I’ve heard the stories of flip flop shoes being ripped off feet when a kid gets on or off one or goes the wrong way on one. I’ve heard of foot injuries, etc. So why do we still even have them?
I mean, aren’t we an obese nation? Shouldn’t we be WALKING stairs instead of riding them? The handicapped, infirm and those with strollers can just take the elevator.
