Renderings of the proposed Golden Gate Bridge barriers were available online today. In an attempt to shut down one of San Francisco's best venues to end one's own life, a special interest group composed primarily of guilt-ridden families allied with purveyors of psychiatric wellness lobbied to have a $2M study of possible barriers to prevent future suicides. Not only are the barriers incredibly ugly, but present a threat of destabilizing the span. Turns out the Golden Gate Bridge is more like a violin than we thought.
Leave the bridge untouched. A simpler way to eliminate those pesky jumpers: ban pedestrians and cyclists entirely from the bridge. Because as per usual, it's the humans who are the problem.
