Authorities in Paris are testing a new moving sidewalk referred to as trottoir roulant rapide or TRR (fast rolling pavement). On its fast section, it currently moves people at about 9 km/ hr (7 mph), however, it is capable of reaching speeds of up to 11 km/ hr. Apparently it is not unusual for first time riders to end up face down on the belt. Be sure to check out the animated guide in the above link.
