If I could have stopped and turned around I would have and then to top it off I got stuck in tunnel trafic. It was a really weird feeling as I sat there helpless.
this reminds me of the weeks and months afterward, when I would drive home from college for the weekend and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was completely dark except for the headlights at night. Like you said, there were all those reports that bridges and tunnels were potential targets so they did what they could and made them harder to see. I still get chills thinking about the first time I noticed that the bridge was pitch black as I drove over it.
