Hoons at Harbour Town

29 Jun 2017

A car meet took place at Harbour Town earlier in June, attracting hundreds of car enthusiasts, including some hoon drivers.

The “Holden vs Ford vs JDM vs Euro Mega Meet”, also dubbed the “Docklands Mega Meet” by participants, was organised by Northside Meets and Cruises on June 2.

The participants were charged $7 for entry and took over the entire the multi-level car park in Waterfront Way.

Some hoon drivers sped along Little Docklands Drive and surrounding streets and some did burnouts.

Police were notified of the event and officers were present to supervise the activities. Some participants allegedly threw bottles at the police.

Harbour Town resident Ella told Docklands News she called centre security several times to complain about the noise, but the loud car meet was not shut down until just before midnight.

“The residents are never informed of the car meets. The events happened pretty regularly last year and we have been complaining to security but have been condoned,” she said.

“These are not low-key events. They are disruptive. The noises continued well past 10pm,” Ella said. “It will only drive people away from Docklands.”

According to Northside Meets and Cruises’ Facebook page, the organisation does not encourage “skids” or hooning and prohibits alcohol, drugs and violence at events.

Melbourne Car Events said there would not be any future events at Harbour Town due to the disruption caused at the last car meet.
