Hoons Put On Notice

Hundreds of cars seized each month

Hoons Put On Notice

Police are nabbing an increasing number of hoon drivers and people who aren't eligible to be behind the wheel.

Since January last year, 11,491 cars have been seized by police, while 6,806 have been impounded during the first six months of this year.

Many of the cars seized over the past four years have been destroyed and police are just weeks away from crushing their 10,000th car.

Most of the impoundments account for police taking cars off drivers who aren’t entitled to drive, because their licence has been suspended or cancelled.

But of the 1836 impoundments attributed to hoon offences, 92% of the drivers were men.

Figures have also revealed our hoon hotspots since the beginning of the year:
Baldivis
Burswood
Stirling
Murdoch
Gosnells
Rockingham
Innaloo
Maddington
Kwinana Beach
Willetton

Police Minister Michelle Roberts said it's a sign police are doing their job, and hoon drivers will get caught.
