What is the worst Bridge you have ever had to cross?
Mine is the old Cooper River Bridge in Charleston SC.
I suggest you take your blood pressure meds, get in the middle or the road, and try not to look down or even at the thin, rusty, bent rails on the sides.
Might be a good idea to stop and kiss the earth when you get to the other side too.

Hmmm... I don't know, I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it!

Any of the old bridges along the Delaware river between Easton PA & Philadelphia. I think the most narrow one there was the one near Washingtons Crossing...so narrow that it can barely fit 2 vehicles,but they try anyway

I am not a fan of driving over bridges I have to be in the middle lane
2 that stick out in my mind
the big one going from Tampa it feels as if the way it is graded your car feels like it is leaning and not toward the middle but the direction of the water
the other was the huge bridge over I think the Chesapeake Bay I had been driving for the past 12 hours from Fl add that to my bridge issues and when I saw the sign that they would drive your car over the bridge I really considered it

Never meet a bridge I did't like.

Ok, ya, the first time I crossed over the Tacoma Narrows bridge.

Like a bridge over troubled waters. Sing it.

LOL..

I've seen that famous footage, with a car sitting in the middle of the bridge and it showed a guy abandoning it, and running to get out of the bridge that was about to collapse into the river below.

it is my phobia.Some bridges I can cross,some I can't.The Bay bridge to Maryland my dad drove me over and I was freaking.It is huge,so huge ships pass under it.

I have less fear if Im not driving but me behind the wheel I panic.

the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is cool, but kinda scary, so is the Delaware Memorial Bridge.


but..........the 7 mile bridge in the FL keys, that one is scary, what would happen if a hurricane went through there
