The most iconic bridge in Florida is beautiful… but it is also deadly. It replaced a bridge that partially collapsed in 1980, killing several people. But its best-known as one of the most popular places in Florida to commit suicide. More than 200 people have jumped to their deaths from the bridge since it was built. At least one of them seems to have stuck around. She is a young blonde female who will climb into your car on one end of the bridge, and will disappear before you reach the other.
Note that it is illegal to stop anywhere on the bridge (one imagines, because of the prevalence of suicides) and if you do you will more than likely find a policeman approach within a minute.
