There are at least three good articles that may end up changing the way elevator/escalator maintenance and repair is billed at as a federal lawsuit is launched due to an elevator being down in a senior housing facility. Another proposed law in Canada may require that buildings have at least one elevator working at all times which I believe is a great idea. The realities however to ensuring that this law is enforced and elevators do not go down for long periods of time will come at a price. Typically to the tenants and building owners as someone is going to have to pick up the tab for doing so. The other news story which went viral was a video of what in some idiot who thought it might be a good idea to use an escalator as a slide. This is the perfect example of Darwinism in its finest and caught on video.
