As long as man has been building roads, we have been building bridges. Beginning with stones and wood, architects, and engineers would construct safe, non-threatening passage for travelers and their goods.

Over time, the structures became larger, longer and taller, made of cement, steel, glass and cable, some stretchingfor miles over lakes, ravines and mountains. Impressive as they have become, the more fear-inducing they have become. 

One slip can change your life or end it. Perhaps it is the adrenaline rush of being vulnerable that makes crossing slippery, swinging bridges a popular adventure. It is certainly not a walk in the park – rotten wooden planks, rain, sudden changes in temperature, strong winds and sometimes no trailing put your life at risk.

Fear of crossing bridges is also known as gephyrophobia. But the people who have it are not the only ones who will not dare to step foot on the following passages, some of which will make you wonder why they were even built.
