I suspect they're getting involved in part because that bridge has been an accident waiting to happen for a long, long time. It's 6 very narrow lanes wide, with no center barrier, and people never go the speed limit across it unless forced. My very first paid legal research assignment concerned the lack of a center divider on this bridge, thirty-odd years ago.

Although I understand the policy of the ducks is to cross it slightly under the speed limit, both because it's a very wide vehicle and to offer its passengers a good view. The bridge is hundreds of feet above the water.

This is the same bridge that used to be second only to the Golden Gate for suicides, where the bus driver was shot while driving in 1998, and it has a troll that lives under it.
