Why does everyone choose the tappan zee bridge??? GWB and Mid Hudson Bridge is much higher?

Does it really matter? That is a ridiculous statement and one that shows total lack of compassion.

This is not the first time people are jumping from Tappan Zee Bridge. This can happen in future too. So what the government is supposed to keep permanent Security Guards 24/ 7 so that the motorists don't have to take risks. after all it is the duty of the government, no matter it is Local, State or Federal Government, or by the combined the efforts of all, to protect the people and make sure the security and safety of all. Local government officials are supposed to take initiation in this case. It is also true that our government officials are too slow in taking decisions. Any way I am glad that senator Chuck Schumer is doing a fantastic job to enforce the laws, especially Metro North incidents, etc. Hope he will notice this urgent message and do something.
