UPDATE: Bikers Still Sought in 10 Freeway Proposal

CHP investigators are looking at the videos posted on Youtube to see if any citations are to be issued.

"It's illegal," Barrios said. "They're not allowed to do that."

NBT, blocking the freeway is pretty serious. Someone could have died. What if there was an emergency and this held up police, fire or ambulance? OR, what about just plain consideration for others? Someone on that freeway could have been on his or her way to a hospital to see a dying loved one for the last time and gotten caught up in the traffic jam. He should have just planned a lovely dinner for her or a romantic weekend away (they even could have ridden the motorcycles to their destination). Or heck, if he REALLY wanted to pull off a stunt proposal, there's always flash mobs.

Very stupid stunt. Take a look at the cars on the other side of the freeway. They were slowing down and some of them (on the right side) actually stopped. They probably all thought it was a huge accident. So glad that nobody had a crash because of these idiots. The whole biker gang should be cited (not just the new fiance). The fines imposed should be severe to stop others from copying them. There are plenty of other ways to propose and get attention.

STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!! Did you see the fools standing on the center barrier? Cars were stopping on the westbound side. They could have caused a major accident especially with trucks coming down that hill. Selfish people with no regard for anyone but themselves.
