Several calls came into the California Highway Patrol this morning reporting a skateboarder on the 405 Freeway in the Costa Mesa area, reports the Orange County Register. But it wasn't an act of rebellion, adrenaline or even protest--as shown in the above photo--it was done out of need. Apparently, the motorist ran out of gas and used a skateboard as the fastest means to get to a gas station.
