Many accidents are caused by human negligence and carelessness.
Escalators appeared in the late nineteenth century thanks to the constructor Jesse Reno and with each decade they gained increased popularity. Today they are present in all shopping malls and subway stations, train stations and public buildings. Many people cannot imagine anything that could replace them.
Escalators are classified as transport equipment from the carrier group, whose task is to transport people between floors of buildings. Escalators are made of an electric motor with a gear, the support structure and the course of the strip forming the moving steps, and handrail. On average, the stairs in an escalator move at a speed of 30 meters per minute.
Although escalators are functional, more and more Chinese people are avoiding them, because of all the tragic events that have taken place in recent years. Asians were particularly worried after they saw a certain video recording of a woman and her child.
