Going up or down a non-working escalator when it's your only option.
It's a hazard because of the way they're set up and the materials they're made out of -- they're dangerous, the dimensions of the escalator steps are different than regular stairs, and when you first get on it, you have readjust your natural walking rhythm.
Yeah, and there's something about the vertical lines corrugating the metal that is dizzying.
just depressing to see. an escalator should be moving, not just sitting there. worst when this is one of your first views upon entering another city via train or bus station.
"Escalators cannot break, they can only become stairs. If one stops working they should put a sign in front of the escalator, saying 'caution, escalator temporarily stairs." - Mitch Hedberg

They are really easy to trip on, too. Jagged metal trip devices. YAY!
