@Robert Gentel,
Thanks, RG. It seems barriers for the Golden Gate Bridge has its supporters and those against for primarily aesthetics and cost. Under those circumstances, it makes sense to do the barrier to save lives.

@cicerone imposter,
Money isn't what stops me. What the hell, a trillion here or there..

I could imagine some barrier being aestheticly pleasing and engineering-safe. I've not seen one yet, but I haven't looked at the video. Where's Calatrava when we need him.. kidding, talk about ruining the bridge. No, I'd like to hear what the main guy at Arup would suggest - forget his name, something like Carlos Beltran. He's a major innovator and problem solver.

@cicerone imposter,
Actually, if you read the article, you will see figures about just that thing.

The article says that a lot of folk, if unable to kill themselves where they planned to, do NOT go on to do it elsewhere.

@Borat Sister,
Do you think they might hope their body is never found? Or even that they are never missed. The unmarked grave thing.

We had a guy who built himself a guillotine. A bit unfair on the cops I thought.

@spendius,
Just as he fell backwards I felt a sharp twinge of utter loneliness. They say that beauty walks a razor's edge and it was right there.

@InfraBlue,
The net is probably the best idea. It won't stop all, but will hinder.
