Burnouts shred two car tyres

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN who shred­ded two tyres while do­ing burnouts in Proser­pine has been fined $600.

Dy­lan An­thony Dean, 33, of Can­non­vale, was found guilty in his ab­sence in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court of a charge of wil­fully mak­ing un­nec­es­sary noise or smoke.

Pros­e­cu­tor Robert Beamish told the court Dean did a 30m burnout on Ren­wick Rd, be­fore do­ing a smaller one on An­zac Rd.

He then con­tin­ued on to Hin­schen St where he did a large burnout and his tyre blew, Mr Beamish said.

Dean took his car to a tyre re­tailer to have two shred­ded tyres re­placed, Mr Beamish said.

The court was told po­lice went to a Proser­pine house and found the ve­hi­cle un­der a tarp.

Dean told po­lice at the time he had not driven the ve­hi­cle for three weeks, and he got the tyres changed “just be­cause they were worn out”, Mr Beamish said. How­ever Mr Beamish said Dean was “in­con­sis­tent with his an­swers” to po­lice at the time. In hand­ing down the fine, Magistrate Si­mon Young said the burnout was not a one-off event.

“This is more se­ri­ous than the stan­dard type of burnout be­cause it’s re­peated be­hav­iour.”

GUILTY: A man was fined in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court for wil­fully mak­ing un­nec­es­sary noise or smoke.
