On right road to nail hoons
THE new laws to try to stamp out hooning seem like a step in the right direction by the State Government.
Hooning has been a real problem in Gympie.
You just have to drive around some of our streets to see the amount of rubber layed on the roads.
Apart from the fact hooning is expensive - I don't know too many people who can afford to buy new tyres all the time - it is also dangerous.
I have been to many accidents caused by hooning. Unfortunately, a few have been fatal and in some cases innocent bystanders have been the victims.
The laws might be tough but is nothing compared to losing a loved one due to the stupidity of others.
