State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano wants all new bridges to have suicide barriers

Bridges being built or rebuilt using state or federal money should consider adding suicide prevention systems, according to new legislation introduced by State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano.

Ammiano has long been an advocate for a suicide prevention system on the Golden Gate Bridge, where over 1,400 have jumped off to their death.

Golden Gate Bridge officials have approved plans to build a $50 million barrier on the span, but have been unable to identify funding for the project.
