    No. Despite what some people think, the homeless are not murderers and usually want to be left alone.

    With some bridges, there is no place for anyone to shelter under. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is a good example of that- it's a huge bridge that arcs out over the Bay, and there is nothing under it except some rather choppy COLD water. Not exactly an idyllic place for a homeless person to hang out, is it. There's also no shoulder on the bridge itself, or on the ramps leading to it, so there's no place to go if your vehicle stalls or breaks down. You're more at risk of someone slamming into you from behind and killing you that way than you are of being murdered on that bridge. The same thing can be said of some of the major bridges in and around San Francisco in California, such as the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. Neither of these bridges have shoulders or places where people can hang out under them. They're both over water- the bay- and because they're suspension bridges, they don't have places where anyone could hang out.

    And you need to quit thinking that all homeless people are violent or are criminals. The reality is just the opposite. Many people who end up homeless are in that situation through no fault of their own.

    No, not high risk.  Probably not even a medium risk really.

    I'd be more concerned that other vehicles will be able to see me so they don't crash into me.

    Not particularly. It depends on exactly where you break down.

    Er, no - homeless people aren't also generally murderers...

    No. Despite what some people think, the homeless are not murderers and usually want to be left alone. Even the really mentally disturbed are generally not violent. So, no, to your q
