LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Dashcam footage caught a pedestrian walking in the middle of the 110 Freeway Thursday morning.
A driver named JD Raimer posted the video to Instagram showing an unidentified man casually walking in the number one lane of the freeway at around 8:40 a.m. during the morning rush of traffic.READ MORE: LA County Supports Less Strict Threshold For Disneyland, Other Theme Parks To Reopen
According to Raimer, the pedestrian had headphones in and appeared to be walking down the freeway without a care in the world.
The caption of the video read, “Only in LA will you find a guy walking down the number 1 lane of the 110 N during rush hour and that’s not the reason it’s bumper to bumper traffic!”READ MORE: High-Definition Panorama Taken By Mars Rover Perseverance Shows Crater Rim, Cliff Face Of Ancient River Delta
According to Raimer, vehicles were simply driving around the pedestrian and continuing with their morning commutes.
The strange sight comes just a couple of weeks after a man was filmed riding a bicycle in the middle of traffic on the 101 Freeway.
Jake Asner — a photographer and grandson of legendary actor Ed Asner — thought he’d seen it all in Hollywood. That is, until he drove past the man on the 101 at Highland on June 3 and started to record.
“All of a sudden, I think I see a motorcycle doing wheelies on the freeway, but I looked to my left and it’s a guy on a bike!” he remembered. “So I basically rolled down my window and said, ‘What are you doing man?’ And he just gave me a weird look and kept going.”
Jake was driving in the number two lane in his car. The bicyclist was in the number three lane on his two wheels as cars honked.
“A lot of the other drivers were swerving trying to get into the other lanes…and he almost got hit a couple of times so it’s pretty dangerous,” Asner said.
The unidentified bicyclist rode away but left Jake and many others who’ve seen this video shaking their heads.MORE NEWS: LA City Council Gives Preliminary OK To $5 Hazard Pay For Grocery Store Workers
“Stay safe out there, don’t ride on the freeway, it’s a bad idea,” Asner said, noting it’s something that could happen “only in L.A.”
