Golden Gate Bridge Jump Net System

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world’s most distinguished landmarks. It’s one of the most-visited tourist destinations and also one of the most photographed. There are many good things about this bridge. But you should also know that it has been called the suicide bridge due to the many attempts of suicide of people jumping off the bridge.

To resolve this, the government installed the Golden Gate Bridge net, a system that was inspired by the one in Bern, Switzerland. It works because the person jumping off the bridge will land on the net some 20 feet below, and this will cause him some minor injury that will prevent him from getting out. He will only be able to get out after he is rescued. The system is said to be so effective that no one has dared to try it just yet.
