I am sorry about your friend but in the spirit of your post to me the other day you posted on the wrong thread.

Look at the Title of the Thread my friend CNM started. It makes no mention of Sun Glare or that the Bridge or Overpass discussed had to be in The Villages.

Isn't it easy to see that this could be prevented on the New Bridges that are coming over The Florida TURNPIKE?

Going to the pool I'll answer your kind reply later. This is an important issue to me, very important. Can you feel that? Why the offtrack comment's? Very Uncharacteristic of you! Is it because I'm serious about something instead of just Clowning around like usual? I'm Confounded!

time to give the fencing, graffiti, etc. a rest.
Posting on here accomplishes nothing. Have to take you soap box to the state capital....good luck.

I'm sure some(not you Nucky) of you posters have been called a lot of things....... but not a "Bridge Builder"!

What can we do about the sun?
There are situations we can control and situations we can't. Rocks and other items do get thrown from bridges all over the country.

Serious questions - not being a smart azz.

Do you think FDOT doesn't know that? Do you think they don't care? Do you know if any safety measures are being put into the design of the bridges. If I cared that much.... I would have been on the phone with my state rep. a long time ago. Last question - Anyone think about this before that poor troubled soul jumped? I don't recall reading about it!

You're right. Discussing this or any other serious issue on TOTV accomplishes nothing. I don't know why I keep getting sucked in to these futile discussions.

I agree with Bogie & FW, I don't wanna Beef with anybody.

The report that CW put up is wonderful and a quick look brought me to page 765 about fencing. It certainly is a comprehensive document and I will skim through it and appreciate you finding it because I couldn't.

Good job and consider that The Peace Pipe Has Been Smoked!
