The Golden Gate Bridge had its lowest amount of car traffic on Monday, January 4, 1982. On that day a devastating rainstorm struck the San Francisco Bay Area.  Earth slides and flooding covered the highway and roads near the Bridge. Two days after the rainstorm only 3,921 southbound vehicles had crossed the Bridge. The average daily southbound count for 1982 was 37,936 crossings.
