Circular Bridge Constructed In Uruguay To Slow Traffic, Encourage Drivers To Enjoy The View

January 26, 2016

This is the circular bridge recently constructed on the southern coast of Uruguay between Rocha and Maldonado to slow traffic and encourage drivers to enjoy the panoramic views. So they're making the bridge safer by slowing traffic, but then ramping the danger back up again by encouraging drivers to not pay attention to the road. Maybe that's why I just drove my car into the water. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer when drivers actually pay attention to driving. The other day I saw a guy driving and checking his Instagram feed. I yelled that I'm gonna take a picture of the wreck when he crashes but I don't think he got it even though I felt like that was pretty clever at the time. Now that I look back at it I realize it wasn't that clever and I should have just stuck with a classic 'OFF YOUR PHONE @$$HOLE!' and two solid birds.

Keep going for two more shots from different angles.

Thanks again to Ro, who informed me the shortest distance between two points is a tunnel dug through the center of the earth.

    But what about all the many people who crap their pants driving on bridges and just want the hellish experience to end? Yeah - I'm not a fan.

    The Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Mackinac Bay Bridge (Scariest) both have services at the bridge where drivers pay to have someone else drive them over the Bridges, Kent Island Express and Mackinac Bridge Authority respectively. And those aren't the only ones....

    It's called gephyrophobia, which is a fear of bridges. *song plays* The more you know....... *star shoots up in the air and now you are educated*

    At that point, verify somebody is observing over it nearly. Having a solidified money related life in retirement can prompt less push and stresses, as well as more prominent achievement.
    In outline, here is my solid proposal: Use these "Key Ingredients" as a test to put your current monetary expert under serious scrutiny. It is precisely what my customers demand from my retirement plans, and the fact of the matter is, they ought not consider working with me on the off chance that I can't give this to them. I think you'll concur that these endowments are fundamental, as well as they truly aren't "asking for excess'.

    Put a diner in the middle. This will not do anything useful. In fact they'll probably encourage people to drift.

  • westmclarenmerc

    That was my first thought too. Can't wait for the video's of people drifting on it. And I really can't wait for the video's where they fail and end up in the water.

  • Why not a JUMP? I think people would be paying SHITTON of attention if there is a jump. Or a loop? Or a tennis ball gun turret LIKE AMERICA GLADIATORS?!?! Fuck... I'm so bored driving.

    Submit your idea to red bull and I'm sure they'll have someone jumping this before the year is over.

    hmm...at a bird's eye view it does resemble that of a wide open eye for a bridge that makes people see more of the beautiful sea scape. Although I also do see that this is only beneficial to passangers and not so much the driver who should indeed keep their eyes on the road.

  • Kaizer Chief

    passangers?

  • MustacheHam

    oh dear, I have mispelled passengers. Thanks for pointing this out. ☺

  • dougfunnay

    dont worry they did too

  • "So they're making the bridge safer by slowing traffic, but then ramping the danger back up again by encouraging drivers to not pay attention to the road."

    Get outta my brain, GW.

    (Or at the very least, tidy up a bit while you're there)

  • Guesticle

    that sounds unnecessarily inconvenient
