Re: Car falls from Chesapeake Bay Bridge

Weird though that the car got airbourne enough to go over.

I only worry about bridges like this one in fog. First, don't wanna repeat of the Sunshine Skyway incident where the bridge is rammed by a ship. Second, and this goes doublely so on the motorcycle, i worry about getting rammed from behind. I usually slow down only slightly depending on how good or bad the vis is. But if there is slower moving traffic it forces me to slow to unsafe speeds for a high speed roadway. There is no such thing as a fender bender on a motorcycle.
