Police have reported a group of people for doing burnouts at Monarto South over the weekend.
Just after midnight on Sunday 5 November, police were called to the dogleg of Ferries McDonald Road and Chaunceys Road after reports of several vehicles doing burnouts.
Community members have expressed concern and frustration about hoon behaviour in the area in the past.
When police arrived, they located six vehicles in the area with one allegedly conducting a burnout.
Police defected four vehicles, one driver was issued with an expiation notice for driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle and unassigned registration plates.
A 29-year-old man from Morphett Vale was also reported for misuse of a motor vehicle, driving unregistered, uninsured and unassigned plates. His vehicle was impounded for 28 days, and he will be summoned to attend at Murray Bridge Magistrates Court at a later date.
A concerned citizen said she is glad to see some action taken on the ongoing issue.
“Many local residents have called the Police about these constant burnouts over the years. Hopefully, now that the Police have attended the most recent complaint and laid charges, it will serve as a deterrent for others in the future,” she said.
Murray Bridge Police have issued a statement warning hoon drivers of the consequences.
“Drivers face being reported or arrested, and their cars impounded if caught driving in a dangerous or inappropriate manner,” Murray Bridge Police said in a statement.
“Police have no tolerance to this manner of driving putting themselves or others at risk.”
While in the recent past, hoon drivers have evaded police following reports from the public, they recently caught up with and arrested a 39-year-old motorcyclist.
It is alleged the White Hill man engaged in hoon behavior and failed to stop for police while riding an unregistered and uninsured motorbike while disqualified. He is due at the Murray Bridge Magistrates Court on 4 December.
