Hard to see this as a federal item.

1500 have jumped over the 80 year span of the bridge's life.  I bet they'll still succeed....there or somewhere else.....I mean are you going to jump into the net?

I thought they have had nets for years on that bridge already?

Liberal "logic" at work.


Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:31:46 PM EDT
The bill to get the nets was passed after the dude pushing the bill son jumped off the bridge.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:32:32 PM EDT
Can't they just jump onto the net and then crawl out to the edge and then jump?
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:32:47 PM EDT
What's to stop someone from jumping out of the net?
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:33:33 PM EDT
Why not just let them jump?

You know, gotta be free.

$22,281 per foot of the bridge span for the net.  

$133,333 for every person who killed themselves over 80 years.

And we know that the son would have been a happy and productive member of society if that evil bridge wasn't there to kill him.

Second net would need to be wider.  $400 million.

Is this just more LOL facepalm stupidity from the corrupt and the idiots of California? or is there some actual reasonable tangible measurable achievement that is probable to result from this.. what looks like wasteful stupidity?
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:37:18 PM EDT
Make the net out of thin high tensile strength wire.

Keeps the sharks away from the surfers
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:37:27 PM EDT
If they are at that point, there probably isn't much to stop them.

Suicide rates from the bridge will plummet.  


Suicide rates overall?Probably not.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:38:19 PM EDT
The nets need to be made of bungie material so when the jumpers hit, they rebound up and further out into the bay.

That way the sight of the nets dissuade the "attention seeker" suicides but benefit the "I'm serious this time" suicides.

Win / Win

Seems like there would be easier less painful and frightening ways to end yourself than jumping from a bridge.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:39:33 PM EDT
Make it out of high tensile razor wire and save us some money long term.

So put the net just a few feet off the water.

Good compromise.

that net might be just a visual deterrent, ruins the mood? it will only take what? 20 feet from the fall and they can just jump again from the net.

Also now there will be an attraction on the bridge. A really cool net you can jump off the bridge into for fun.

Some lawyer probably told the City of S.F. that suicide by leaps over the railing was foreseeable and the City would get sued.  Even IF the City won.  It would cost beaucoup bucks to defend the City.

So.....people can't have a pretty bridge.

They are making it out of stainless steel and suspending it 20 feet under the sidewalk.  I guess the idea is to remove the possibility of a quick painless death.

When I worked down there I was friends with some of the cops on the golden gate, one of them gave me a tour of the towers (elevator to the top). WAAAAAAY more than 1500 people have bailed off that thing. I remember a week where they had 3. Usually it is late at night and they get eaten by the fishes or float up months later.

Can't wait to read about someone who jumps and is injured by the net and then sues and wins
You know it's coming

Extra weight on the bridge.  Wonderful.  People also jump from the Bay Bridge and there's no pedestrian walkway there either.

They don't even talk about them anymore.  Too worried about copycats.  That's the mark of a thriving society.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:51:55 PM EDT
Should just have inmates serving life sentences for murder patrolling the bridge.  If someone gets out to jump, they take over.
Link Posted: 4/14/2017 3:52:28 PM EDT
BTW, there were jumpers who missed the water and landed on the coffer around the tower or on land.  Splat!

They say it will cost $200 million which in CA speak means it will actually cost about $500 million.

200 million? Doesn't sound like a slush fund to me, no sir. Perfectly legit.
