The myth of Suicidal Pedestrians is a very popular legend in the GTA community. This myth is also frequently referred to as the myth of the Falling Lemmings, which got its name from the 1991 puzzle video game Lemmings, a video game released by DMA Design, which would later be renamed to Rockstar North, the developers of the Grand Theft Auto series. The myth has been included as an Easter Egg in the game ever since GTA III.
Aspatria - Bedford Point Expressway
In the Aspatria - Bedford Point Expressway tunnel on Staunton Island, pedestrians may sometimes be seen running off the edge of the overhang above the tunnel. This is due to a pedestrian path glitch, and it is also because there is no fence or railing to prevent the pedestrians from going off the edge. Also, the pedestrians' AI is not smart enough to avoid the edge and fall off. This usually occurs if the player fires weapons while inside the tunnel, and the pedestrians may flee in panic and accidentally run off the edge, where they will fall to their deaths in the tunnel.
In the Wichita Gardens, just down the road by the safe house, pedestrians may sometimes be seen running from the right-side footpath, then going into the water and drown. This is due to a pedestrian path glitch. Also, the pedestrians' AI is not smart enough to avoid the water area and fall off.
