Don't Say You Weren't Warned

Multiple warning signs for the sharp S-curve on the Bay Bridge (2012)

When the sharp S-curve at the western end of the east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge was put into place for construction of the new span, there were several severe accidents. So the speed limit was lowered to 40 mph with a lower advisory speed. In this December 2012 photo, you can see at least two overhead warning signs. On the right side of the overhead structure of the bridge, you can see suspension cables for the new span, being built just to the north.
