    I thought travelators were used in shopping centres etc to accommodate for prams and wheelchairs rather than using escalators and then needing to install more conveniently located lifts.

    I'm an adult and am not impressed when I get pushed out of the way for someone to barge past. I would see red if the pushed/touched my child regardless of what said child was doing. Find a way to communicate, don't push.

    That would really upset me, surely there isn't that big a rush that she needed to lay a hand on your child to get past. There's no 'Keep left unless overtaking' sign, you have a right to stand wherever you want with your pram on one, imo..

    Regardless the other lady was out of line: she should never have touched your child I would have given her a mouthful too.

    That being said one of my pet peeves is people who block both sides of a travelator/elevator. Stick to the left people!

    Yep, and for trolleys that can't usually be moved whilst on one, they kind of lock in for the ride.. So I think they are more of a stationary thing where ppl could perhaps display a little patience.

    Not always possible with a trolley or double pram though... For those just standing, I guess it would be common courtesy to stay left.

    Actually they are not designed for pram or wheelchairs. The trolleys have latch that locks them into place. It would be very easy to knock someone out of wheelchair or pram by pushing past.

    Ok just to be sure when you all say travelator are they the same as escalators ? Or am I missing something.

    I hear what you are saying and if I don't have a pram or,trolley I do walk them but only if there is no one in front of me.

    I haven't had a chance to read any of the replies here yet, but who touches someone else's child?? To save herself, what, maybe 10 seconds? Rude. I would have said something as well. What would she have said if someone pushed her leg or whatever out of the way? Your DS is just a baby. Impatient much?

    Today at music time at the library, this 3 year old kid ran past DD who has just started standing on her own/walking and actually shoved her out of his way as he scrambled to the front of the room. I yelled out "Oi!" after him, and was going to tell him to be careful but he didn't hear me. And that was a 3 year old toddler! Now, if it was an adult... let's just say I wouldn't have been too pleased and I would have voiced that, too.

    This. I get the sh!ts if I can't walk up an escalator, because I'm usually in a hurry trying to cram as much as I can into my time.
    However I always say 'excuse me'. If they don't move, I say it louder. If they still don't, I just wait (impatiently!). I would never push past anyone, and never grab a child to move them.
