Supposedly cars will move to the top of the incline where the force will stop and then the car will roll back across the bridge. Many people who visit the area sprinkle their cars with powder and have reported seeing children’s hand prints on their automobiles. Other reports claim to see large hand prints believed to be those of the bus driver.
