As one woman in NYC can attest to, they can actually cause you to lose weight - via significant blood loss:-(

 

In any event, I'm too claustrophobic for those things - so I couldn't tell you the dietary/nutritional effects from personal experience

There are safeties and safeties for the safeties. The problems come from lack of maintenance. Escalators are way more dangerous. Most elevator fatalities are from the car going up uncontrolled. The counter weight makes the car smash into the top of the shaft.

(?) Overtravel area... Offset sheaves...Dogs...Traction braking...(?)

 

Agree about the lack of maintenance...that's why they get inspected regularly (that and filling the the union's and others pockets)

This does make sense - however, from the little I know about the story out of NYC last week, this had little to do with that accident

I may not be a lightweight, but it's definitely not because of elevators.
