Caution: Obviousness Ahead
Image by anaxila
This sign appears at the end of the pedestrian tunnel from the train station to the high street in Slough England, where the tunnel meets Queensmere Mall. I chuckled every single time I passed.

What, exactly, are pedestrians being warned against in this scenario? The stairs are right there. It’s not as if they can be missed, or as if one could accidentally begin climbing stairs without being aware of it. I understand a warning at the top of the stairs so as to avoid falling down, but when was the last time someone fell up a flight of stairs?

Also, the warning is too non-specific for my needs. What is the nature of the danger? Do the stairs get slippery when it rains? Are they more steep than normal? Do they bite? Or is the very act of climbing stairs hazardous in some way that has eluded me all these years, but sufficiently well-known to the English that all they need is a reminder to be on the lookout?
