Suggested correction: It's some random seemingly old wire, and it has nothing to do with "safety."

Factual error: When Bourne gets off the ship in the very beginning of the film, he is in the harbour of Imperia in Italy. Then he travels to Zurich by train. On the seats of the train you can see the logo TGV which are the French Railway's high speed trains. A French train doesn't travel from Italy to Switzerland.

Suggested correction: Although the scene in the harbor may have been shot in Italy, within the context of the story, it takes place in Marseille. Jason then travels the high speed lines to Zurich from there.

Continuity mistake: This is the scene where Jason is on the fire escape platform in the consulate in Zurich. Before he goes down below the platform we see that the platform is cleared of all the snow. Then moments later, when security guard opens the door and Jason is under the platform, the top of the platform is fully covered with snow again. (00:23:46)

Chosen answer: They are octopii hung up to dry in the sun. A common sight at Greek islands. If you search Google, there are pictures of them. They are humorously mentioned at http://www.thevisualrecord.com/dbphotopages/photopage.php?photo_id=80
