Adventures in silly signage

The CTA has these handy-dandy “elevator status” signs used by the station attendants to alert riders about broken elevators and whatnot.  In fact, I think they’re just to alert riders when there are elevators out of order.

Oddly enough, at the LaSalle Blue line stop, they have one of those signs on the main landing, which is at the top of one set of stairs and at the bottom of another.  This isn’t to say that people who can walk stairs don’t care about broken elevators, but it struck me as somewhat amusing that the sign was in a spot completely inaccessible to people in wheelchairs.
