This bridge is in my region and I think about it sometimes. When I was young I'd drive across it way too fast late at night. It's 197 feet high. (A little under 11 stories.) The bridge goes down to water level for a good distance, so it was super fun to drive fast on. It feels like a poetic place to jump as it was the backdrop of my highschool years. It's actually been featured in a lot of movies, for example Short Circuit.
CTB is common on this bridge, so it's definitely possible. It's not open to pedestrian traffic, so most people park their car on the bridge and jump. (That seems to be the way people know it happened.) I haven't heard of any cases of people surviving. Although I read of a case that a guy jumped, but landed on the grass. He died, but after hospital. Most times the bodies aren't recovered. This is at the mouth of a major river, so one would likely wind up in the ocean. (Maybe?) I like that idea. What happens when you land on water from this height?
Not a set plan, but I find myself day dreaming about it. It's been a source of comfort lately. I'd like to occupy my mind with this.
Any stories or tips? What bridges attract you? There's the classic Golden Gate Bridge. I'd be curious to learn of others I may not know about.
