This proposal is a first for Los Angeles.
A member of the 710 B!kerz Motorcycle Club and a group of his friends stopped traffic on the 10 Freeway in Los Angeles this week. According to an interview on Power 106, Hector Martinez said he came up with the idea in October to stop traffic and propose to his girlfriend Paige Hernandez in a cloud of pink smoke. He recruited a large group of fellow bikers, invited their families to watch from an overpass, and informed his then-girlfriend they were going on “just another Sunday ride.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is now investigating. Although there have been no accidents or injuries reported due to the club stoping traffic for about 10 minutes, Officer Jose Barrios said, “It’s illegal. They’re not allowed to do that.” CHP investigatiors are reviewing the many videos of the proposal that have been posted online, but so far Martinez and Hernandez say they have not been contacted by law enforcemet. The club may be facing citations for “impeding or blocking traffic” said Officer Barrios, he did add that for L.A, the mortorcycle proposal was “a first.”

Do you think Mr. Martinez and his MC should be cited for stopping traffic even though no one was hurt and no accidents were caused?
