It’s always a good idea to give ladders a wide berth if you pass by one while walking down the street. Not only is it bad luck to walk under one, but there will also be a chance you could be hit by an object knocked down by the person perched atop the extending climbing device. While superstition keeps many people away from ladders, even if they don’t really believe in that sort of thing, unfortunately, the same cannot be said for scaffolding.
Scaffolding, a temporary structure constructed from metal poles and wooden platforms designed to allow traders to work on the exterior of buildings when using a ladder would be impractical or dangerous, does not instill the same superstitious fear into people as the humble ladder. This is a shame, because walking under scaffolding can also be very dangerous.
