Why stop there? Why don't the makers of razors, rope, knives, plastic bags, builders of tall buildings etc issue infringements too?
Because you cannot stop someone determined to kill themselves (short of medical restraints etc) and you cannot hold the implement used responsible, which is what the notice is for- it's to prevent liability lawsuits against the council in case someone hurts themselves or gets killed by their own deliberate actions. Which is ridiculous; it's not the builder's fault, and that's blatently obvious, so on what planet do they get off reversing the equasion and fining the victim?!
That poor poor young man, that poor poor family

This is bureaucracy gone mad! Definitely not
The family did not jump from the bridge and are not responsible for others actions. Sometimes I swear they send these bills and fines knowing they are wrong but some just pay without questing so it's a bonus to them.
I hope that the family are fighting this in every way although I'm inclined to think that a solicitor would not need to fight much to squash this especially in reference to the deceased estate as a PP mentioned.

No way is that right!
The parents are grieving they don't need that. It's almost like they are getting fined for his death
I would assume majority of people who jump of the bridge would die so IMO the fine is utterly ridiculous

1. It wasn't their action's that created the fine.
2. Gosh have a little sympathy they just lost a young adult who was obviously struggling. Give them a break, poor family!
