oakland bay bridge[edit]

is it really notable to mention that people drive across the oakland bay bridge to jump off the golden gate? The oakland bay bridge is impossible to access as a pedestrian. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 209.210.75.70 (talk) 04:24, 9 January 2007 (UTC).

intro[edit]

The intro needs to be revised a bit. The introductory sentence, "It is a well-known phenomenon that certain bridges are especially popular for people attempting suicide." is not in an encyclopedic tone. Well-known? --W3stfa11 16:13, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Anti-Suicide barriers[edit]

Perhaps the discussion of anti-suicide barriers at the Golden Gate Bridge should mention that Jim Jones (of Jonestown murder-suicide fame) proposed the barrier. 68.83.72.162 (talk) 10:07, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Gateway Bridge, Brisbane[edit]

Perhaps someone should mention the Gateway Bridge in Brisbane, Australia. It was once quite common for people to stop their cars on the bridge and initiate suicide, until barriers were installed...

Delete this[edit]

Why does this article exist? It seems to be original research, in the sense that the phrase "suicide bridge" is not actually used to refer to anything in reality, and the term is being invented or popularized by this article. --76.224.94.69 (talk) 00:19, 17 November 2007 (UTC)


Hornsey Lane Bridge in Archway, London is most definitely called this throughout London and would be recognised through much of the UK as referring to that bridge. 86.166.180.242 (talk) 22:01, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Nanjing Bridge[edit]

The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge should be included. ShakyIsles (talk) 08:46, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes. Actually, reading that the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge has more than 2000 recorded suicides, the 1200 events quoted for this bridge are an unconvincing argument to make it the most popular suicide site. 80.135.140.111 (talk) 00:29, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
