California's Bridges: Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco Bay (2)

1999 (37.818 deg, -122.478 deg.) Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge includes a park where people can enjoy views of the Bay. When I first started at Caltrans, a new deck was being installed (by Caltrans for some reason). An engineer in my design section had worked on the deck replacement which was being done at night. He told me that several times a week, someone would drive onto the bridge and slam on the brakes. Then the driver would run out of the car and throw themselves off the bridge. I can hardly imagine what that must feel like, except that it must feel really awful.
