A dangerous trend is being circulated on You Tube and social media. It shows people illegally trespassing and hanging on the Catwalk below the Foresthill Bridge over the American River.
Placer County Sheriff’s Spokesperson Deana Erwin says 10 people mostly from the Sacramento area were cited early Sunday and 24 more were encountered there later in the day.
Not only is it illegal to enter the gated catwalk are it is also extremely dangerous.
Erwin says deputies are actively patrolling and citing violators.
The Foresthill Bridge is a popular and scenic destination, bu the Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to stay on the walkways of the upper deck. The view is the same and it’s much safer.
