My friend was on her way home from her first night of work last Monday, when there was a freeway closure. It was right down the street from me, so I checked it out, and it turned out that someone had jumped off the overpass into traffic. She said that they need to put up a No Diving sign or something, so I thought that would be a great idea for the Night Shot challenge. And it may be a nice deterrent for any would-be jumpers.

Nice creative twist to an otherwise overdone type of shot!
