Highway warning (region of Spiez) - rocks were thrown from bridges

Basically, what the title say. Somebody has been throwing rocks at passing cars from various bridges in the Spiez region. Be careful if you're in the area and are driving on the A6.

Re: Highway warning (region of Spiez) - rocks were thrown from bridges

Oh FFS, you miserable bastards. It's supposed to be a turn of phrase.

OK.

470 days ago (g1ve or take five or six hours) one person reported one case of having a rock thrown at his car.

Some other people offered some anecodtal tales and agreed that, in priciple, throwing rocks at cars was generally not a good thing.

OK?
