Imagine if Paige Hernandez had said no. She would have to answer to an entire freeway of angry drivers who had the misfortune of being caught behind the roughly 300 motorcyclists who blocked the 10 freeway in West Covina.
Worse, she would have broken Hector Martinez’s heart. On top of that, all those possible citations they’re facing would have been all for naught.
But, in what has become one of the more creative marriage proposals we’ve seen in a while, Hernandez said yes. Take a look at the video as bikers bring the 10 freeway to a standstill while Martinez hops off his bike and asks for Hernandez’s hand in marriage.
We hope she’s worth it because according to the LA Times, CHP officers are now investigating the videos. Impeding or blocking traffic are among the many possible citations Martinez might now be facing.
Now what we really want to know is what’s up with the guy in the Benz who almost takes out about five riders as he angrily speeds off at the end of the video. Dude, don’t you believe in love?
