When I was in the R.N. we had to clear weather decks when going under the road bridge.
This was after a penny came down and embedded itself into the wooden deck of 'Ton' Class minesweeper.
Even a sailors hard head would not be proof against some idiots trying to drop coins from the bridge onto passing ships.
I wonder if that routine of getting under cover is still followed by the Royal Navy.

I remember having to clear the upper decks in Halifax NS when some yobbo threw a bottle off a bridge and it hit the ship. Luckily nobody was hurt.
