Two young Wisconsin daredevils were hit with charges of trespassing this week stemming from their climb in April to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge’s north tower — a stunt after which they posted video online of them dangling high over the roadway. Peter “Teatime” Kurer, 18, and Thomas Rector, believed to be in his 20s, were ordered to appear for arraignment in San Rafael on Sept. 12 on charges of trespassing and climbing a toll bridge, both misdemeanors, Marin County District Attorney Edward Berberian said Thursday.

Drivers crossing the Golden Gate Bridge got an unusual view Wednesday morning when an RV crashed into a booth on the toll plaza, trapping the two occupants inside, officials said.No one sustained serious injuries when the large white vehicle crashed into the toll booth shortly before noon, but the only door to the vehicle was ripped off in the impact, and the vehicle was wedged into the toll booth, leaving the occupants unable to get out, according to the California Highway Patrol.CHP officers, Golden Gate Bridge workers and firefighters from the Southern Marin Fire District responded to the scene and extracted the RV in less than an hour, according to CHP.

- Golden Gate Bridge lawsuit: Daredevils climbed span for viral fame
By Kurtis Alexander - Friday Aug 11, 2017
Two thrill-seekers who enjoyed a moment of Internet fame this spring when they scaled the Golden Gate Bridge’s 746-foot north tower and then released footage of themselves performing death-defying stunts atop the iconic span are being sued by the bridge authority.The Golden Gate Bridge district’s lawsuit in Marin County Superior Court alleges that Peter “Teatime” Kurer, 18, and Thomas Rector, who is in his 20s, not only trespassed and created a safety nuisance but sought to enrich themselves by filming their escapade and sharing it on social media.Bridge officials said Friday that the men put “personal profit and gain” ahead of common sense and safety and that the district was compelled to act.“We take security very seriously at the Golden Gate Bridge and those who break the rules will face consequences,” said Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District Deputy General Manager Steve Miller in an email to The Chronicle.The suit claims that the two intentionally dodged security cameras, allowing their actions to go undetected — at least until they posted footage weeks later.“Teatime and his associate Rector senselessly put the lives of themselves and others in serious jeopardy to exploit the San Francisco Bay Area’s most iconic landmark for their own publicity, expand their own Internet and social media presence and achieve fame and, relatedly, monetary profit,” the suit reads.The civil action, filed Aug. 2, alleges unjust enrichment, unfair business practices and unfair competition as well as trespass and public nuisance.The California Highway Patrol is pursuing a separate criminal investigation of the ascent.
- Weekend closures in store for Golden Gate Bridge vista point lot
By Sarah Ravani - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
For the next five weekends, the vista point parking lot at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge will be closed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to most vehicles in an attempt to alleviate traffic gridlock, officials said Thursday.Caltrans issued a permit Wednesday clearing the way for the Golden Gate Bridge District to severely restrict weekend access to the vista point through Labor Day weekend, said Priya Clemens, a spokeswoman for the Golden Gate Bridge District.Beginning this weekend, car access to the popular outlook will be blocked from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The same restrictions will apply to the parking lot at the Welcome Center on the San Francisco side of the bridge, which is controlled by the bridge district.Northbound traffic jams on the bridge have become a routine weekend problem with drivers sometimes waiting more than an hour to get into the parking lot, which only has 126 parking spaces.The popular outlook will remain accessible to visitors by foot, public transit and bicycles, Clemens added.The restrictions haven’t been met with any pushback from residents and community members, Clemens added.
