When you are on a moving sidewalk or moving stairs (escalator) do you stand still or walk?

Asked by josie (30158points) 1 month ago

Or do you just ignore them all together

I already said that I walk on the down escalator on your other question.

What about on the flat moving sidewalk?

ucme's avatar

Yeah, same thing!
They all move far too slowly for me.

I used to walk,now I stand there holding a cane in a threatening way in case someone has a problem with my lack of movement. :)

As Jerry Seinfeld used to say, “It’s not a ride!”

People mover, walk (on the left).
Escalator, stand (on the right).

If I’m on an escalator, it depends on how much of a hurry I am in.

If I am on a people mover, it depends on how much of a hurry I am in and if I have luggage (like at an airport, which is where I usually encounter the people mover). If I have a lot of luggage that I have placed down, then I will not walk, I will ride.

I stand on an escalator but walk on a moving sidewalk. You would grow old at the Atlanta airport if you didn’t walk.
