There aren't quite words to contain our exasperation with stunts like this. Mere days after we watched a gaggle of jokers shut down an Orange County Oakland freeway for the sole purpose of doing donuts in the middle of the road, Hector "Tank" Martinez managed to talk some 300 motorcycle riders into helping him bring Interstate 10 in Los Angeles to a standstill. While Martinez used the moment as an excuse to execute a burnout of his own, his larger purpose was to get down on one knee in the middle lane and propose to his girlfriend, Paige Hernandez.

While we're all for romance, something tells us the magic would have been broken pretty quickly had the group been rear ended by an inattentive truck driver. We're not asking much, people. Just do us a favor and think past your own selfish ends. Or, more pointedly, just think. Watch the stupidity in the video below.

      I hope Hector is spending his honeymoon and the next five years in the county jail singing love songs to Bubba....

      Just imagine how these asshats would react if someone did the same thing to them while they were trying to get through their day.

        Maybe a nice young couple could break into their house at, say, 3am to propose. It'll only take a few minutes, right?

      So we know who these people are. What is the LAPD and the LA prosecutor waiting for?

      Disrespectful douchebag riders like these give the rest of us normal riders a bad name.

      This looks like the group conspired to commit a crime. They should face a gang injunction that forbids them from gathering, lose their licenses, have their motorcycles crushed, and spend 100s of hours picking up trash along the 10. As someone else pointed out below, traffic costs everyone money.

      Why does AB keep saying "Orange County?" Those idiots last weekend were over in Oakland, on 880 atthe Coliseum.

      We have to start sterilizing these attention ******. People with functioning brains could have been damaged because of this human defective.

      I'm sure today he's proposing on the highway, the next day he's kicking her to the curb. I hope there were no accidents in rear of the traffic jam, no people with real emergencies trying to get somewhere, or people with one of life's little emergencies like picking up their kids.

      This is dangerous. How long before this trend of blocking highways sparks a twinkle in the eye of the wrong anti-U.S. madman? I'd put all of them in jail in Arizona to work chain-gang duty--no TV, no workout gym, no b-ball courts--for a year without bail and $100,000 fine.
