VIDEO: Footage of Skateboarding on California Freeways Sparks Investigation

Videos on social media of young people skateboarding on freeways in Los Angeles and San Diego counties have emerged in recent weeks, prompting the California Highway Patrol to investigate, reports the Los Angeles Times.

"We are aware of skateboarding on the freeways in downtown and parts of L.A. There has been social media and there have been hashtags appearing with a challenge to skateboarders," said CHP Officer Jose Nunez. "These are not safe places and weren't designed for that kind of thing. ... This is an enforceable action and if we can identify any one or vehicle action will be taken against those individuals."

In several videos, young people jump out of cars and skateboard through traffic, a KTLA video shows.

Nunez said last year the agency saw a spate of bicyclists on freeways. "They would ride between ramps in the slow lane," he said.

These skateboards should be confiscated from the suspects and they be charged a fee if they want the skateboards back or just destroy the skateboard from the suspect(s) because it is a public nuisance. Believe me they are not just kids on skateboards I have seen grown men on them and they are the worst type of suspect.
