Addressing 'Hoon’ behaviour

Media Response 10 February 2021

Everyone should feel safe in our community. The City takes concerns around antisocial behaviour very seriously. While we appreciate that offences relating to hoon behaviour fall under the jurisdiction of WA Police, we are listening to our community. 

The City has a strong working relationship with Kensington Police Station and we continue to work closely to address concerns around unsafe driving, including a hooning blitz in the area.

The City already has plans to install traffic monitoring devices along Mill Point Road that will provide essential speed and traffic data to Police, and assist with any further solutions that may be required.

On-street parking will soon be reintroduced along Mill Point Road during night hours, which will also help to slow traffic. 

There is no excuse for unsafe driving. This kind of behaviour is especially concerning in residential or built up areas where cars back out of driveways and families cross the road regularly.

If anyone witnesses hoon behaviour such as speeding, drag racing or burnouts, I encourage you to contact the Police on 131 444 if immediate assistance is required, or report the incident on the WA Police website.
