VIDEO: Woman Flips Over After Trying To Ride Motorized Scooter Up MBTA Escalator
BOSTON (CBS) – A woman on a motorized scooter fell down an escalator on the MBTA last week.On Friday, the 56-year-old woman from South Boston was attempting to ride her scooter up an escalator at the Broadway MBTA Station, but flipped over a couple times and fell down.
There's video at the link. Don't watch it unless you feel like going to hell - I couldn't stop myself from laughing.Then again, think about the settlement this woman is going to receive from the MBTA because the warning signs don't explicitly state "Do not try to ride a scooter up the escalator" and you'll stop laughing pretty quickly. I'm trying to figure out the thought process involved here - there are *all* kinds of signs warning you not to take strollers/rolling suitcases/anything with wheels up the escalators, and there are ramps/elevators/etc.
Remember, you can't fix stupid - but that doesn't mean Massachusetts won't shovel millions of dollars at it...
That is all.
