The first one in England looks like it starts in the water and ends in the water.
That is the only bridge visible the rest are covered in ads.

Years ago I drove over an old metal bridge crossing between GA and S.C. that was scarier than most of those
Was that the old bridge over the river in Savannah? Yeah, that bridge and its twin on US-17 across the James River going into Newport News were both uncomfortably tall and skinny for me. Add in being the first car stopped up on top when the bridge opened and it got scary. And if you were on the side where the bridge pivot was located, when it opened the shaking and swaying as the bridge was moving was terrifying. Especially at night.

There was an old bridge over the Mississippi on US-82 between MS and AR that I hated with a passion. Tall, long and very skinny it was really too narrow to be driving modern tractor trailers across, especially if you met another on coming towards you. I had a side mirror broken when a guy coming towards me was across the centerline trying to stay away from the edge and his mirror hit mine.

Lots of puckered butts for me because I'd go across there several times on a monthly basis.

No way in the world. Have to cross the Bay bridge to go to eastern MD occasionally-one of these days I'm going to get caught for speeding over that bridge. I hate long bridges!

Crossed the Bay Bridge in Md. couple three hundred times, and have walked it twice during the annual walk the bridge walk. The one thing you do not notice while driving across is how much that bridge swings, when you are walking across it is very noticeable.

There was one of those old steel/wooden bridges where I am from. It was SCARY to us as kids because it was pretty long and creaked and…

Favorite “torture” from my cousin and aunt was to drive over it slowly and SCREAM when we were little. So no, I will not go over those bridges until my lobotomy has been completed. Thanks for asking.

I've got a hobby of searching out and crossing ancient and sketchy bridges during my travels.

Sketchy in Arkansas.


The Wabash Cannonball bridge, converted from a railroad bridge.

A Plank In The Sky, China - Suicide is not on my menu....ever! NO WAY!

Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado
- Been there done that. It's actually a nice walk...but the river is a long ways down.

Hussaini Hanging Bridge, Pakistan
- talk about a rickety POS bridge...no way!

Longjiang Suspension Bridge, China
- Maybe once they finish it....but not today.

Mekong River Crossing, China - Do I look crazy? Nope!

Mystery Bridge, Indonesia
- Yeah, if I had to.

Baliem River Bridge, Western New Guinea - Nope I'm sure I'm too big and heavy.

Most of them I would cross without a problem except the ones built for people half my size and weight. I don't do rickety. That Plank In the Sky bridge in China....NO FLIPPIN WAY!!

I do not remember the highway or road but it was up towards Elberton

This bridge looks like it starts in the water and ends in the water. Not a viable bridge.

This too shall pass.
I've been on a couple of the bridges pictured -- one in Washington state, one in the Florida Keys. There are a few pictured that I wouldn't go on, especially not the board-on-the-side-of-the-cliff one. No way. The worst bridge I've ever actually been on is in Alaska (if it's still there). It crosses O'Brien Creek right before the creek runs into the Copper River, and, when we were there many years ago, it had two boards for your tires, so you could drive across. We were dip-netting salmon on the far side (out of the Copper River), and normally just walked across, which wasn't so bad. Driving across was scary.
