A lovestruck motorcyclist in the US ran the risk of becoming a victim of road rage by blocking a major Californian highway to pop the question to his girlfriend.

You see Hector "Tank" Martinez had some how arranged 300 other motorcycle riders to cruise Interstate 10 in Los Angeles and then with all lanes covered the posse stopped, blocked and undertook some wheelies and burnouts. While that was all happening, Martinez dropped to one knee and proposed to Paige Hernandez.

From the video clip, it seems she said yes, which is probably a lot less than the motorists backed up behind the stunt, had to say.

Hernandez's stunt came just a couple of days after a group of drivers shut down another Californian highway - this time in Orange County, Oakland - to do a bunch drifting burnouts.

A rather shaky video of that event is below.
