Open Emergancy Exit's?

Recommended Posts

I was at Atlantic Ave yesterday on the (3) and at the front of the platform is a emergency exit. This time though the exit door was wide open. Aren't these things supposed to be closed most of the time? Anyone could just walk in there. At first I thought it was a exit to the trains but turned out to be an emergency exit. Could it be a safety hazard?

I dont think having a door open is aa safety hazard.. I think the entire door malfunctioned which caused it to remain open. Seeing people uses these doors alot..

No not those doors by the turnstiles, i mean like an actual emergency gate with stairs leading to wherever.

Well im just saying if someone walks down/up the stairs and falls, chances are there gonna sue for liability claim.

Still a no-no. Come on, you should know better than this.

Well he did what he did, and how can you tell someone what to do these days? It's for the people's risks, they're not supposed to enter these areas, but who's to blame when the door is open?

Yea I know I shouldnt have gone in there. I was kinda confused at first cause I didnt see the emergency exit sign until I looked back and it was on the other side of the door.

True, just confused Julio, if its an Emergency Exit, then why dont they have it with the Push bars, but they are locked?

Maybe because it was unlocked, and I don't think the gates at Atlantic Avenue have the push bars anyway.
