Fast Track Safety Study On San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge
This petition had 1,095 supporters
The San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge has been a suicide hot spot since it opened in 1969. Last year (2016), 17 people ended their lives by jumping from mid-span. To date, 391 people have died by suicide and last year 4 people lost their lives when a car flew off and landed on top of them at Chicano Park, which sits directly under the Bridge.
With the help of CA- Senator Ben Hueso, we victoriously got Caltrans to agree to fund and complete a feasibility safety study which started this month (7/2017), but they say it will take 10 months to complete.
Governor, there is a 100% certainty that many people will commit suicide on the bridge during this time. About once a week, someone attempts to or successfully jumps to their death. The study needs to be completed much faster.
We need you to tell the Director of District 11 @ Caltrans, Laurie Berman, to do this and protect these people that can not make decisions for themselves in the states of mind they're in at the time they find themselves standing at the ledge, ready to end their lives.
Please help us do this... the time to act is now Sir. Thank you.
