At least 17,000 bridges nation wide didn't get a two-year check up according to MSNBC.com. Everyone drives on a bridge sometime in his or her life, who knows, maybe you crossed a bridge just to get to this class, but you probably don't ever worry about the bridge collapsing. Bridges are an important part of everyday driving, without them; travel across the United States could be impossible. American people should not have to worry about bridges collapsing if the necessary precautions are taken. The problem with today’s bridges are that they are becoming structurally deficient and states have found loopholes in the law, and the solutions require more maintenance check ups and providing more money. Many people may recall the bridge collapse near Minneapolis when a freeway bridge went plunging into the Mississippi River with the end result being 13 deaths. Governors tried to calm the public’s fears saying that federal regulations require each bridge to be checked every two years. You may wonder how bridges become deficient.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
