Dangerous Bridge Jumping

There has been an uptick in young residents jumping from the Captain’s Island bridge into the creek below. On Saturday, parents were even seen dropping kids off to let them jump off of the bridge. This may seem like a fun idea at the time, but it is an incredibly dangerous one and we would like for all residents to please be responsible and educate your children of the hazards of this behavior. Bridge jumping can cause serious injury to those partaking in the activity and may cause death. Passing boats are also at risk by the unexpected jumper.

The POA is working with Council Member White to amend the City ordinance to make bridge jumping illegal.
