Very noble of them. I've been preaching this for some time to my 7-person church choir. :) Unfortunately, the whole engineering thing is broken. Buildings tilt at only 40 cm/s pgv. A moderate earthquake would condemn every building in LA.
The Florida bridge is indicative of the 'New Wave'. Had it stood, it would have done the same at 10 cm/s. Somewhere at that level is the high chance of static collapse, as we have witnessed. *
The US now praises incompetence. 'Who's next?' gloats trumpypants. We wait for the next earthquake.
*In general, structures have a nominal earthquake capacity due to winds and live loads. It's somewhere around 10-20 cm/s. Anything lower than that, and you have static collapse, like in third-world countries.
