Harsh title, it seems. If one doesn’t climb, that does not necessarily imply that they want to or will die but I think it means that they don’t value their lives well enough to climb a bridge specially built for those who value their lives. Refusal to climb a pedestrian bridge to the other end of a busy road is like a death wish. These bridges are constructed at strategic places where there is heavy flow of traffic. I see a lot of people on a pedestrian bridge and I look down at the speeding vehicles underneath and I whisper a “thank you” to God because I wonder how difficult and traffic-impeding it would have been for all those people to try to cross the busy road at the same time going in opposite directions. Although there are pros and cons to using the pedestrian bridge, it is very evident that the pros far outweigh the cons. One con is that it is punishable by the law. If caught, one could get punished. How embarrassing!
So to end this I'd say I hope you are not like the man in my story, if you are, please change. Don’t cross underneath the bridge. Value your life. Have pity on those you said goodbye to before leaving home and those who await your return. You only live once (YOLO). If I’m going out with someone and there’s a need to use the bridge and the other person refuses, I’d gladly tell them “see you on the other side.” So if one refuses to climb but tries to cross, gets hit and dies, and there's a question about who is to blame? My answer? The dead body.
