suicide attempt closes bridge - again

Original post made by driver, Palo Verde, on Jan 11, 2011

For the second time in the past couple of months an important road bridge has been shut down due to a suicidal individual. Last time it was the Bay Bridge. Today it was the Dumbarton Bridge.

Suicide barriers are not just important to save the life of the individual, but are now necessary to keep from causing traffic chaos. Whether it be for the sake of the individual which is important for saving a life,or for keeping traffic flow, we need to get safer bridges and train crossings to prevent causing traffic chaos.

How much toll increase do you think drivers would tolerate for this purpose?
