Some folks have been threatened with arrest for attempting to get on the closed 405 today, but that didn't stop a woman named Heather Grimmer.

She drove onto the southbound 405 from Getty Center Drive, she tweets. The Los Angeles Times says she noticed that a CHP officer was letting a few cars on the freeway, so she decided to try it this morning. She got the rarest of views in L.A.

Her video and declaration of victory:

"I felt like I was the only person in LA!!"
