Thread: Paris "Lovelocks bridge" collapsed

  1. #1

    Default Paris "Lovelocks bridge" collapsed

    Part of the Pont des Arts Bridge (Lovelocks Bridge) in Paris collapsed due to the growing number of locks . Estimated total weight of locks = 40 tons..

    Didn't remember it to be that full of locks when i was there 2-3 years ago.

    It's not the locks that caused the bridge to collapse.

    It's the lovers locking each other on the bridge that weights it down.

    Why locks? Love should free you, not lock you up.

    Love collapse bridges and kills you !! Beware, love is blind and most often then not you will make the wrong choice and spent the rest of your life trying to accept it. Is your bridge strong enough to prevent the collapse ?

    Should remove the locks every month. Then new one can put up and also lock can sell well as got space for it.

    It's not about the bridge.

    It's about the love locks get weighty and salty.
