The Bench to Nowhere

This bench on Ellerslie Road overpass above Calgary Trail always make me laugh. Does anyone actually sit here?

Designers tend to add things to plans that look good on plans. They might even look good in real life. But are they functional? I'm in this area somewhat frequently and I've yet to see someone sitting here. I don't think I've even seen someone walking on the bridge.

Anyway, I decided to go try it out to see if it's as bad as I imagine.
