The number of injuries to passengers riding escalators at Prague Metro stations has risen in recent years, the news website iDnes.cz reported. It said escalators at some stations were running excessively quickly. The number of injuries was 441 last year, compared to 368 in 2009. However, injuries to children’s hands and feet have declined after brushes were installed alongside steps in some stations. Most injuries last year were caused by passengers colliding on escalators. Those in a number of stations, such as Náměstí Míru, run faster than permitted under EU norms, iDnes.cz said.
