Tonight on the West Gate Bridge

I was coming home late tonight, trying to beat the heat and catch the cool change, by driving home via the West Gate Bridge. Suddenly, traffic slowed drastically and we were climbing the bridge at 60 km per hour.

From a distant, I saw a lot of flashing lights, presuming from a traffic police vehicle. As I near the scene, we were reduced from 4 lanes down to 2. I saw several police vehicles, separating the traffic from a white ute. As I pass, I saw a guy standing on the outerside of the fence, having a smoke.

I guess he wanted to enjoy the view, enjoy the cool breeze from the bridge! I hope it was resolved without anyone getting hurt. I didn’t stay long enough to see the conclusion (couldn’t drive that slow!).
