As our friends at SFist note, there have been 42 accidents on the Bay Bridge’s new S curve since its September debut.

In light of this morning’s newest accident on that stretch of the bridge, we’ve pulled representatives of the three attitudes we’ve heard expressed the most today — that overly-speedy drivers are to blame, Caltrans’ design is crappy, or that the Bridge is basically cursed — and put them in a poll. So, vote, damnit.
