What needs to be done to put an end to dangerous hooning?
■ I think it’s stupid when police crack down on done-up cars like wide wheels and lowered suspension. Wide wheels and thicker tyres is actually more safer and has more grip. It also makes the driver a lot more cautious and not do burnouts, cause honestly who would want to ruin a good and expensive set of wheels. I get it’s technically against the law. But honestly, it makes them drive safer and do less, if not any, form of burnouts/ skids. Just my two cents. ■ The two bends on Saunders St, Elliott Heads has had at least two cars leave the roadway over a 12 month period, the most recent being a couple of months ago. I usually hear one caravan a day lock the brakes up and I’ve lost count of how many times I see the school buses fly around the shop bend. Lately it’s been a bike rider treating Rule St, Saunders St and Elliott Heads Rd as a personal racing track. Just waiting for the day I get a car or something through the front yard. ■ Crushing cars is wasted economy. The government would be far better off selling them to boost money back into the system to reduce rates and taxes for the workers. Crushing a car won’t stop anyone from doing burnouts. Give us car enthusiasts somewhere to let out our passion. ■ Around Woondooma St is ridiculous, the amount of CCTV footage I’ve handed in to police because of idiots that somehow manage to get a license handed to them had one driving round every corner sideways, hitting the brakes. Rang police, they came checked the cameras got his number plate and I watched him get done up the road from my place by a detective who watched him go sideways round the corner then got him. ■ I’m a car enthusiast and I don’t get the point of these idiots burning tyres everywhere. Go to a track guys, there’s plenty of places to do it. You’re wrecking it for the rest of us. ■ Get more support for Carina, open it more often like every second Thursday, Friday nights. ■ Give them somewhere they can safely “have their fun” that does not endanger the lives of other road users.
