Out of Order

It is not required to use punctuation on signs. If you do choose to do so, be careful in their use.


The full-stop at the end of the conditional clause means that the second statement is not bound to the condition. In the event of a fire you should use the staircase, but you should not use the elevator with or without the fire. That being the case the entire apparatus seems redundant.

Being a good rule following Brit, I did I was told and, despite no apparent sign of flames or smoke, I walked up the staircase.
