In Western countries you'd rather find an Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation, for example, or signs that say "Hold the handrail". Legs are rarely an issue.

Hi, friend. It's so interesting! ^_^

Thanks for your concern about those "Chinglish". To be frank, I really feel sorry for those silly/improper translations. We hope we can make improvements in the coming future.
