P Plate hoons

By MartyMcFly 11 February 2010 59

What is it with these P Plate hoons these days??? do they just want to kill themselves and those around them???

Look at this gem, the guy has just gotten onto his P’s and decides the best way to celebrate is to go flying down the highway at 240km/h!!!!

I really wish the government would do something about this reckless behavior… they should change the age limit to obtain a licence to 21…

If I ever meet that guy i’d call him a jerk right to his face!!
I’m also considering sending this to A Current Affair, they seem to have the resources to find this person!

P Plate Bashing, guys? Really?
Wish people would stop pushing all P Platers into one “hoon” category. I am a P Plater and am getting sick and tired for copping abuse from “more experienced drivers” for doing the speed limit. I know there are a lot of idiot P Platers around, just look at Civic on a Friday night…But there are also a lot of careful P Plate drivers who know that being behind the wheel of a car is a privledge, rather than a right and who understand the damage that can be done if the car is not respected. Yes, I know that sounds like a cliche, ‘to respect the car’, but some of realise that there are consequences for our actions and doing dangerous things behind the wheel of a however many tonne block of metal can have the most serious consequences.

And might I mention that the abuse I got from one driver a few days ago, after tailgating me most of the way down Belconnen Way/Barry Drive, yelled at me and gave me the finger out the window and proceeded to go (I’m guessing) 80kmph or more in the 40kmph zone along Barry Drive, was rather disturbing. I can’t imagine how people can give “P Plater Hoons” such a bad rap when there are drivers of each level who are just as bad.

A fairly obvious giveaway, apart from the P plates, that there is a f#@kwit behind the wheel is the vehicle having been ‘lowered’ so that it is riding on the bump rubbers. ie, all springing has been removed.

This changes the suspension geometry to the point where a bump can cause the vehicle to instantly change lanes,(bump steer), and loads up the body in contact with the snub rubbers constantly, rather than once in a blue moon, stressing the immediate area. This will result in fatigue fractures to the body.

These vehicles would instantly fail the 100mm ground clearance test, in addition to their lethal suspension.

Perhaps a ‘lets watch out for’ for the traffic officers.

Eh BevanLeigh

Your assertion that it is a genuine video is noted. However for it to be such, the cars this pretender was overtaking would have themselves been doing 180-200 km/hr.

Not to disparage Seouth Effriken drivers, mon, but the chances of thet would have been smaller than a bushman’s bank account.

I say fake, on the basis of the apparent overtaking speed.

I’m from SA orig…. people have no dramas exceeding the 120km/h speedlimit on the highways…
a look at the road death tolls explains all….

Blame John Howard and work choices….. its the reason for all the worlds problems including clubbing baby seals.

thanks caf. i’m mechanically impaired. seems like an awful lot of work to do nothing… i reckon we should burn him at the stake just in case though.

BevanLeigh 10:05 pm 13 Feb 10

Thx everyone for the kind words 🙂

Here’s the video again since some ppl are keen on seeing it.. After the wonderful emails i received i thought i should put it back up.

Now if you must know, it is 100% true, the speedo was not tampered with or anything.
It was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa by a member of a local car club there. Yes he was speeding, the speed limit there is 120km/h. as someone posted up above the road markings are all different compared to the highway here. also the car is a Fiat Uno Turbo… A car which was never ever sold in Australia.

It was nice to see it got posted up all over the show… 🙂
Sorry to say tho, I dont do shit like this on public roads, Thats why I hav a race car.

Catcha later 😉

These fools deserve what they get, the more that remove them selves from the genepool, the fresher the water will be. I blame the idiotic parents, its yout fault!! Do us all a favor and dont breed.

I think the parents have bred tho… so…. not sure what we gonna do now???

Retrospective abortions would be highly useful in many cases.

wishuwell 6:59 pm 13 Feb 10

Just to expand on my comment #4 to make that kind of speed with the amount of boost indicated would produce massive temperature, but if it is real I want the name of his engineer for the Jag project. Messing with the speedo is as easy as with a cable drive just change the drive gear or electronic the sender unit. That would explain why the odometer appears to be in step with the speedometer. The vid has been removed maybe because of three reasons, 1 its real and the driver is worried about being fined for being a nob, or 2 its faked and he’s worried about been called a nob either way there is a television programme screaming for new talent its called Tool Academy.Or 3 maybe utube has developed a conscience. Having said all that though if he was to kill my wife and kids for his fun I would make his experience on this planet most horrid.

urchin: The odometer runs off the speedometer – if the speedo is out of calibration, then so is the odomoeter.

Thoroughly Smashed 12:12 pm 13 Feb 10

Bummer, the video’s been removed.

Did it show anything other than the speedometer?

LMR said :

There are restrictions for motocyclists on L or P plates why not cars?

I do love this argument,, it seems to be all the rage in the media and nanny-staters, but it’s flawed.

Power restrictions do nothing – if I want to go 150km/h, I’ll go 150km/h no matter how powerful my vehicle is (unless it’s a 3 cyl Charade that literally won’t get there – good luck passing, then enforcing that all P platers are required to drive Charades). Difference being, most of the high powered (stock) cars also have better brakes, handling and performance in general to help ‘counter’ the power ratio. It’s much easier to handle a stock car with a bigger engine than a shitbox modded by a dumbarse kid to have the same power.

If you want to see evidence that neither passenger OR power restrictions on P platers work – have a look at NSW, count how many fatalities have occured SINCE they introduced the restrictions and how many were people actually abiding by the restrictions. It’s not a deterrant, it just makes people’s choice to break the law easier.
