    Lol wtf. How about proper policing first. Catch these phuckers, beat them until they learn their lesson and then set them free again. Repeat if necessary.

    Can we afford the policing of all bridges 24/7?

    Best thing to combat this would be a team of ex-army snipers and a couple of drones equipped with night vision. The only thing that you should feel for someone who drops a rock on a highway is recoil.

    This will at least stop the throwing from pedestrian bridges. Jesus.

    On the R300 in Cape Town we have had them for ages. Still there. And they're now erecting a barrier fence in the middle as well.

    Unfortunately that's not allowed, a thief was caught stealing grapes on the farm here last week, when caught, he slipped over his own feet quite a few times and hurt himself. First thing the clumsy idiot does when the police comes is to lay a charge of assault against the security guards. Still waiting to hear what's going to happen now.

    The folks over at MSPaint Engineers Pty (Ltd) have updated their proposal.

    Ottoman cannons can't destroy Byzantine walls. 1453 was an inside job.

    Yep, instead of doing Real Police Work(TM) like prowling the streets, looking for rapists and murderers.

    That is victim blaming and sexist.

    Womyn are strong and independent and don't need no man to stop them from getting raped.

    The catch fences are to the sides, i.e. on the left/right as you drive on the bridge, so the bridge will be supporting them, not the other way around.

    And the ones across the N2 on the KZN South Coast too, saw about at least two bridges with extended steel cages on them when I went down the coast on Saturday.
