Escalator of dooooom

Saw this in Melbourne Central station.  An unfortunate positioning of visual elements, lends an escalator sign an entirely more sinister meaning (it’s even better with its caption):


Is it only me that sees this as an escalator with a drop into a chasm on the end?  Makes me think of “Lemmings”.

Nah, it's not just you. Maybe the sign is truthful - do we actually know how many accidents happen on escalators? I mean, considering that around 600 people die each year in USA falling out of bed, I'd think escalators are much more dangerous :)
