    Take your scooter up an escelator?

    VIDEO: Woman Flips Over After Trying To Ride Motorized Scooter Up MBTA Escalator CBS Boston
    BOSTON (CBS) A woman on a motorized scooter fell down an escalator on the MBTA last week.

    On Friday, the woman was attempting to ride her scooter up a Red Line escalator, but flipped over a couple times and fell down.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    She will probably sue and then we will see signs that say no riding up escalators on a scooter.

    My first thought as well. There are no signs saying she shouldn't try to ride her scooter there, so it makes sense that she went ahead and tried anyway.

    Good thing she didn't try riding it down.

    She looked perfectly able-bodied walking down, I don't know why she was riding a Coronary Cart in the first place.

    Why did she think that was going to work?
