    Ohio Plans to Copy Golden Gate Bridge Suicide Barrier
    The All America Bridge in Akron, Ohio is known to locals as the suicide bridge.

    We're not alone on the Golden Gate Bridge suicide net. The All-America Bridge in Akron, Ohio, is nicknamed the Suicide Bridge by locals, and they're now going to use federal stimulus money to help build a fence.
