CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Daring or dumb? Or just downright illegal?

A YouTube video that has gone viral appears to show three kids in two off-road vehicles speeding down the Dan Ryan Expressway Friday night.

CBS News reports that Omar Orozco said he couldn’t believe his eyes when he captured the sight as he was driving home to Lansing at about midnight.

He spotted the kids driving what appears to be Polaris Ranger side-by-sides in the southbound lanes near the Garfield exit.

They don't have their lights on. There are no visible license plates. 

And the kids look like they might be around 10 years old.

Orozco told CBS that he tried to talk to the boys, but they told him only that they were going home.

Illinois State Police said they received a call about the incident but found nothing by the time troopers arrived.

Police told CBS that the vehicles seen in the video are not allowed on Illinois expressways.
