Near panic on wrong way escalator


This is almost too much; an escalator reverses direction and, well, just watch what these people try to do. Back and neck pain, sure, right...

Back and neck pain is the ticket for big lawsuit on whoever owns that subway. Back and neck pain is something that is nearly impossible to disprove... Maybe im missing something?

I can imagine a rather unpleasant crush of people at the base of the escalator, masses intent on going up funneling onto the entrance while met with a stream of others now thrust at them by the reversed escalator.

Thats great. Saw that happen on a people mover at O'hare. It stopped moving and so did the people and just stood their waiting for it to move again. Took a minute for them to see that they could just walk.
