Warning: Door Eats Children

Warning: Door Eats Children

I have seen commodious revolving doors as entry to supermarkets where the auto-rotation eases access by cart-encumbered shoppers. Here a Warning: Door Eats Children admonition for parents to watch their children probably addresses the legal need for a notice of impending danger, but is a far from practical visual footnote. See how small and poorly positioned at the bottom of the image above. CLICK the thumbnail for another impression of the signage in situ. Without scaring off customers, this Warning: Door Eats Children probably should be more prominent.
