While it wouldn't bother me, I doubt my wife would get on that bridge.
I don't think it's as steep as the bottom pic makes it appear.

I wouldn't do it in a car with a manual transmission.

As someone who used to drive a stick, that's a really scary thought!

I'm just the opposite, I have more confidence going down a steep grade with a straight shift than I do an automatic. Would prefer not to stop going up hill but nothing I wouldn't feel uncomfortable with. A little hard to tell from the pics but I believe parts of my driveway are as steep as that bridge.

I would have no problem with this bridge with a stick. I would worry if it is was snowing, though.
