Hoon’s eye view of the crackdown

By johnboy - 15 September 2008 31

The miracle of YouTube brings us a look at the workings of the police crackdown on hoon driving on deserted country roads.

The attached text by “DoYouBoost” reads:

    “the blockaid the police used to check canberra cars, us, the so called “hoons” ppffftt yeah right”

What’s Your opinion?

All I’m saying is that most of the car’s that go to rush hour are shit boxes.. I want a drag-strip back too… but its not going to happen with these idiots driving around in shit boxes every Thursday night trying to do burnouts and stealing number plates off the back of police cars..

If you promote illegal burnouts then the government wont listen to us.. I grew up going to the old drag-strip and i miss it so why do these amateurs have to wreck it for the rest of us.

They call it Rush Hour… its where a bunch of 17 to 20 year olds take there mums car out for a spin. I’ve been out there my self a few times and never is there race cars or nice cars with big V8’s… it’s a kids club!!!

So I take it you were in Mummy’s Excel too then?? Why would there be race cars, when a race car by definition cannot be driven on the road??

Also I have been out there too and most the guys I met were over 25 years old. It is quite interesting what they have too say, unfortunately they are let down by a minority of dickheads who can’t drive and can’t read or write. Funnily enough those people also seem to have P plates on thier cars.

I’d just put them all on a multicar transporter and take them straight to the wreckers. I’d love to see them ‘laughing’ then 🙂

Isn’t some extreme environmentalist going to complain about how they all left their engines own burning fuel and polluting?

Sick ’em, Rex. They evidently think they have a “right” to drive like they do. Part of the generation with all those rights, but can’t spell responsibility. The idea of considering others has never occurred to them. And let’s save a special big Thank You to all the parents who raised people like this.

Was that a car alarm or a person honking in a very regular pattern?

Bit of a wank, I would have just pulled over and waited till there was no longer a queue. Would be interesting if everybody did that, would the police work their way down the road, or would they play the waiting game?

“From the looks of it, that would have been enough time to switch the drunk drivers to the sober ones. Maybe that’s why they didn’t catch so many people.”

It’s been done on cruises before.

“blockaid”- does that mean it was some sort of fundraising festival for hoons? When I were a lad, it was “blockade”.

Forty-four seconds of testosterone later I still don’t understand the “so-called” part ….

“Blockaid” was an awesome festival.

Isn’t unnecessary use of a warning device a fineable offense?

Im any case this video does no one justice – the police for having minimal assistance for that many cars – and the idiots waiting laughing and beeping their horns.

By the time they would have gotten to teh front of the queue – both cops and civvies would begetting tired and emotional – guess who would come out ontop though.

Sometimes its best to grin whilst eating sh1t – if you have nothing to fear – you have nothing to worry about.
