throwing around the word "friend" may be ill conceived and pompous on our part.
most of those listed here usually cross the street if they see us coming the other way.

florida highway patrol

 hey, that's us getting a ticket on alligator alley!
common sense words from: Someone who works behind the red & blue lights.
Hey - could you do us a favor and ask all your readers to PLEASE slow down when coming by us on the bridge? We often have a couple of patrol cars there because one is working and one is watching out for insane drivers. Not slowing down and moving over when emergency vehicles are by the side of the road is actually against the law. Help keep us safe, and avoid that nasty ticket! Thanks! (the thanks go to you. this is one of those common sense things many people are incapable of comprehending. it is better to slow down and, dare we say, rubberneck, then it is to blow by the scene and risk hitting something and/or someone.)
05.09.99: on florida bridge, troopers are also suicide counselors.
we appreciate these officers and do not envy their having to deal with the scum and debris of human villainy. stay safe, troopers. now, about that ticket you gave us on 'alligator alley'. is 86 really too fast? come on!
there are 60 excuses and they cycle to the clock, a different one every second. send your excuses.

acronyms some of these agencies use.
one might think these organizations want nothing to do with this site and you'd probably be right. as a whole, we're sure their public policy is that this site is wrong and it should go away. however, individuals within apparently find this site a source of information and/or perhaps a way to release bridge jumper news that would otherwise not see the light of day. they know they can always give jumper news anonymously, with confidence their identity, if provided, will not be divulged by us. we appreciate these organizations for the work they do, both on and off the skyway. we wish them much success and safety from harm.

your link may or may not be posted by our discretion. your site needs to hold our attention for at least 15 seconds. examples of unlistables: your loving tribute to adolf hitler and aryan supremacy, a blog about reality shows, yo gangsta love of the hip hop culture, your staunch dedication to political, abortion, or religious debate, pictures of your 'whatever' collection or stupid cat, and other such sites we determine to be a bigger waste of internet bandwidth than this one.
