Another good reason why electrical wires should not be near the attic access

Maybe I’m just too picky, but there are several good reasons why electrical wires should not be near the attic access stairs.   One reason is mechanical damage.  The spring has been rubbing against the wire for less than a year.   The insulation has been worn through to the bare wire.  That would explain that tingling sensation when you grab the metal railing.  Wow, the next thing would be the smell of burning wood!
