Hooning is described as dangerous, reckless or anti-social driving (hoon) behaviour.
The Road Traffic Amendment (Impounding and Confiscation of Vehicles) Act 2004 and subsequent amendment legislation, commonly known as Hoon Legislation, empowers police to impound vehicles that:
- are driven in a reckless manner,
- do a burnout; or
- are driven at a speed equal to or greater than 45km/h over the posted speed limit.
If you witness hooning behaviour and believe it will continue long enough for police to attend, please call the police immediately on 131 444 and do not try to approach the person(s) responsible. Alternatively, you can complete a reporting form.
