Seasick on a Bridge?

Sometimes I get annoyed on my commute by potholes, bumps, errant motorists and narrow lanes.

That’s especially true around bridges. Bridges seem most prone to wear, tear, and people who don’t quite know what they’re doing.

But things aren’t nearly as bad as on this Russian bridge in the following video, which was buffeted by high winds. Try driving on this road:

The Russian bridge is apparently new. This is just like the famous “Galloping Gertie” bridge in 1940. The Tacoma Narrows bridge in Washington state had a design flaw when it was built in 1939. It collapesd in 1940 after twisting wildly in a November windstorm.

Guess you’ve got to design your bridges correctly, no?
