HOONS ON NOTICE
There is nowhere to hide for rule-flouting tinnie hoons this school holidays.
A Gold Coast and Brisbane police operation is running the length of the Coast’s waterways with support from the sky by the Pol Air helicopter, which will regularly scan known troublespots for what cops call “anti-social behaviour”.
People young and old should be encouraged to make use of and enjoy our expansive waterways – but that comes with a responsibility to look out for fellow users.
The increased focus on the louts is a welcome one after veteran boat captains recently complained about a deterioration of behaviour and knowledge of basic waterways rules to its worst level in decades.
