‘Hooning’ covers a range of offences including:
- driving a defective vehicle,
- excessive noise,
- burnouts, and
- street racing.
If it is a person’s first offence police may impound the offending vehicle for up to 48 hours. Beyond the first offence the courts generally impose a fine.
If a person continues to hoon they may face losing their vehicle to the state.
