Crushing offending cars/trucks/buses (under hoon laws)

Postby newbikeorupgrade » Wed Dec 21, 2011 6:13 am

With the so many near misses/crashes and bullying/intimidation/threats I'm going to get cameras...
The last incident was a building subbie who attempted to run me off the road from behind and the side.
Then he wanted to fight me.
Which got me thinking...
Has anyone successfully crushed a hoons car as a result of threats of violence and intimidation/ dangerous driving?

no. crushing of hoons' cars is reserved for serious stuff like doing donuts and burnouts.

I tried it once, but being a cyclist I didn't have the upper body strength.

Should red light offending cyclists have their bikes crushed?

Teen 'hoon' gets licence then loses car - http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western ... 6232110664


A 19-YEAR-OLD will have to surrender his car after allegedly driving more than 50km/h over the limit within hours of receiving his P-plates.

Police will allege the Shoalwater man was driving a Nissan Skyline north along West Coast Highway in City Beach about 8.30pm on December 12 when he was nabbed on a speed camera driving at 123km/h in a 70km/h zone.

Police said the man was racing against a friend while he had two female passengers in the car.

A surrender notice has been issued for the man's car.

He was charged with reckless driving and will appear in Perth Magistrates Court next month.
