Because she wasn't holding onto the escalator rail.
Yes, that's correct.
A Vancouver woman was detained and fined $100 because she didn't hang onto the escalator rail.
My first thought was 'is this for real?!' My next was 'you have got to be kidding me.'
I mean, come on! Fining a woman because she refused to hang on because she was busy? Maybe this is just my American prejudice against any kind of infringement on rights, but this is just nuts.
From the article- "In the Vancouver region, officials will soon launch a campaign to discourage running, sliding down banisters and other risky behaviour."
....Okie dokie then.
You know what? The entire world has gone nuts, en masse.
