Weak Bridge


Weak bridge

Suppose there were signs on each bridge saying whether or not it was "structurally deficient".

Would this encourage people to take investment seriously?

Or would people route around structurally deficient bridges and get into more crashes, with a net increase in fatalities, given that the likelihood of dying on a bridge collapse is quite small compared to other causes of death.
