That's one way to hitch a ride. During an afternoon commute on I-93 in Massachusetts, two teenage boys were spotted clinging to the back of a tractor trailer. The pair didn't seem too concerned as they traveled at highway speeds.

CBS Boston reports police are disappointed in commuters. Hundred of drivers must have seen the boys, several managed to take photographs and video, yet no one called police. Drivers reportedly caused pandemonium on the road trying to get the trucker's attention. He eventually slowed down, allowing the boys to make a quick escape. Police ask that next time commuters think about safety, rather than their social network feeds, when they see danger on the roadways.

      The only reason the police seems to be furious is because they couldn't fine the driver or whoever they were gonna take charge, the police just didn't get their cut. Oh well.

      The government doesn't want us to believe we can take care of ourselves a lot more than they tell us. We can work as a community and help when we see others in trouble. It is something to be applauded, not disdained. It is by connecting with others we change the vibe between us. Helping someone in what was obviously a bad idea turning into a worse one, people stopped the truck and the kids got off safely. American people there - DONE.

      How do you know if you will get an honest police officer or a sex thug cop who will never be disciplined for criminal acts against the public he or she is supposed to protect?. Best not to get involved at all...that's what some of us say anyway.

      Why call the police? Then they'd be beaten, tased, arrested, jailed and on and on. No, you see people don't like, trust, or respect police anymore- they lost that trust and we have no faith in them. At least on the back of the trailer they had a chance to live. With police, unlikely. Peace.

      It is illegal to use a cell phone, in a car, in you are the driver...Possibly no passanger had a phone, though this sounds doubtful

      It,s soo not fair ( or correct) to say " nobody did anything " if that were true, how would we have the photos and videos geesh .obviously a few people did something

        Yes, useless stuff that most people do today. You are correct.

      Really what were the police going to do-of course this was dangerous-but then again as the reporter was driving and looking down at his camera taking his eyes off the road goes to show that he was just as dangerous, common sense is no longer common sense.

      As long as the truck wasn't speeding the troopers would never see it.
