    SPLAT! What is that, JB O/O? IDK, yeah, it would be traumatic for the driver, but I'd get over it. It wasn't their fault. I've ALWAYS been nervous about people on an overpass, and people who consider suicide, don't care about anyone else or whose life they upset, it's part of the disease.

    Well.
    At least his life was worth about 4 hours.
    How much is yours worth?
    This should be pondered over while on layover/Detention with out pay.

    That truck on the shoulder is a Hogan pulling a Dollar General trailer. They are one of the companies that pull DG freight out of the Alachua DC

    cowards do this. they ain't got the coconuts to get a gun, or a rope and do themselves off in the woods, or an abandoned building, so they choose to ruin someone else's life as well.

    i have no sympathy for the deceased, but a whole lot for the trucker.

    You'd think a bullet to the head would be less painful

    Depends on if they were completely oblivious to what was about to happen

    You have to remember, Gainesville is the home of UF (duh Gaters)...that college is just as liberal as any in Cali or New England...and are anti-gun. So maybe he didn't own one, or have the money to buy one. Besides, bullets are expensive, jumping off a bridge is free, unless you don't die...
