Elevators are my best friends they carry me up and they carry me down all at the push of a button. They come in all shapes and sizes and have a multitude of different interior finishes, control panel layouts, flooring, handrails and floor indicators. Despite the common misconception that elevators are unsafe, they have several redundant emergency braking systems to prevent falls. Elevators are one of the safest vertical transportation methods in common use. In fact, stairs are more dangerous than elevators on average, due to the risk of falling. Some people pass the time in an elevator ride by staring at the floor indicators, which may consist of a dial, a series of lighted floor numbers, or a small electronic display. Some elevators are equipped with music systems for the entertainment of their passengers, and a unique genre of music has become popular with building managers who operate speaker equipped elevators. Some elevators even have a tv screen built in, allowing passengers to watch the news while riding. No matter how many floors you need to go up, you can count on an elevator to lift you up.
