$76 million for Golden Gate bridge suicide barrier
Sorry if this comes off as harsh but this is a waste of money. $76 million? For what? To stop people who want to jump off a bridge? Is it going to end suicide? $#@! no. All it does is prevent the Golden Gate bridge from being a suicide destination which is what the city is really going for.
They don't give a crap about people's lives. They care about the image of the bridge. It's supposed to bring in tourists not people who want to die. That said, it isn't going to stop people from killing themselves as it can't.
A diving board off the bridge seems like a much more cost effective solution. This whole thing just seems like an idiotic waste of money to me: http://news.yahoo.com/golden-gate-br...182411743.html
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge moved a big step closer to getting an oft-debated suicide barrier after bridge officials on Friday approved a $76 million funding package for a net system that would prevent people from jumping to their deaths.

I would think a bungee jumping setup would be more affective. Big ad "Want to jump off a bridge today, we'll help you!"

You ever wonder how many people regretted it after jumping. The moment that it's to late and the few seconds they have left before the impact. Maybe they see that their life wasn't as bad as they thought and would do anything to get it back. At that point, it's just to late.
