Hoon cars go under the hammer

HOONS might have a chance to buy back their former cars when they go under the hammer next Wednesday.

Police will auction 28 vehicles, 11 seized from repeat hoon offenders, at a towing yard in Molendinar unless ownership evidence is provided before 4pm on Monday.

Hooning laws enable police to seize cars from offenders with multiple offences for driving an unregistered or uninsured car, driving unlicensed or disqualified, high-range drink-driving, failing to supply breach or blood or driving an illegally modified vehicle.

The vehicles up for auction have become the state's property through a magistrate order, have not been collected by their owners or voluntarily were handed over.

The auction will begin at 10am on July 4 at Nationwide Towing and Transport, 12 Industrial Ave, Molendinar.

People can inspect vehicles from 8am to 10am on the day of the auction.

To inquire about the vehicles, phone police on 5581 2859.
