Teenage girl falls from Jackson Street freeway overpass to her
A comment presented on the
that reports the story is as follows,
No chain link fence its just a concrete about three feet up
and two steel rails about 1-2ft. apart. also pedestrian signals
located on the on and off ramps. You could even touch the signs
that has the cities names on the freeway overpass.
Bing maps shows how low this railing is. How could this hazard be overlooked and not fixed?
It's incredibly easy for someone to fall over this railing.

Another comment was blaming the victim. I tried to post a
response, but realized I had to sign up for a service. That is
annoying, so I decided to just take a snapshot and show it here.
My response starts with the word "correct".
might add that when a person is walking over these bridges,
there is a disorienting factor that can occur when looking
over the side and down or out at traffic. This could also be a
factor. The girl might have stopped after feeling disoriented
due to this phenomena and fell over.
Some questions to
ask, 1. who is responsible for these bridges
- who is responsible within that department as to overseeing
the safety of pedestrians that walk over them
- has this issue ever been brought up in any public safety
meeting or city council meeting
