REPORT CONCERNING OBJECTS THROWN FROM STRUCTURES ONTO FREEWAYS IN MILWAUKEE COUNTY (ABRIDGEMENT)

THIS PAPER PRESENTS A STATISTICAL COMPILATION OF REPORTED OCCURRENCES OF OBJECTS THROWN ONTO FREEWAYS FROM STRUCTURE OVERCROSSINGS. ALL OCCURRENCES FROM JANUARY 1, 1967, TO MAY 12, 1970, ARE CATEGORIZED AND ANALYZED WITH RESPECT TO LOCATION AND TIME. A MAJORITY OF OCCURRENCES TAKE PLACE DURING AFTER-SCHOOL HOURS. FENCING ON STRUCTURES HAS ALMOST, BUT NOT COMPLETELY, ELIMINATED THE PROBLEM. THE DATA CAN BE USED IN MAKING DECISIONS TO FENCE EXISTING AND FUTURE BRIDGES OVER FREEWAYS LOCATED IN SIMILAR NEIGHBORHOODS OR HAVING SIMILAR PEDESTRIAN CHARACTERISTICS. /AUTHOR/
