"Carmageddon” is officially over in Southern California.
Crews shut down Highway 405 over the weekend so they could widen it.
Some people could not resist the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
One group of friends hopped a barrier, set up a picnic on the empty freeway and snapped pictures.
A transportation employee spotted the friends, but let them continue. He just asked them if they had any food to spare.
