LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - The California Highway Patrol wants to put an end to a dangerous new trend...skateboarding on a freeway!
This is all in responding to the new popular online hashtag "freeway challenge."
A skateboarder jumps out of a car in freeway traffic and does his thing while someone records it…and then posts it online.
The CHP warns this is very dangerous -- not only for skateboarders, but for drivers.
CHP reminded the public that the social media stunt is punishable with a big fine.
