Hoon activity continues

29 May 2019

Hoon activity continues Image

Despite the efforts of Yarra’s Edge residents, a group of car enthusiasts still continues to meet in Point Park Crescent, Docklands.

Residents say that on May 13 motorists were seen doing doughnuts on the grassed area of Point Park, leaving tyre marks in the park.

The crescent circles around the Yarra Point complex and is bordered by Point Park and the Yarra River to the north.

The group typically meets on Fridays and Saturdays and enters the crescent through Lorimer St before doing a loop of South Wharf Drive. Gatherings can attract anywhere from 20 to 100 cars.

This has long been an issue for the Yarra’s Edge community, with the initial incident being reported on in December 2018. Since then locals say that the City of Melbourne, Victoria Police and the EPA have failed to take any meaningful action on the issue.

Local resident Tim has lived in the area for the past five months and said the meetings had been happening consistently since he moved in. He and several other residents say they have been forced to call the police almost every weekend for the past few months.

“When they meet in the parking area the cars make an enormous amount of noise – sometimes it’s literally 20 or 30 cars running at the same time,” Tim said.

Tim suspects the reason that the motorists meet in Point Park is due to the free 24-hour parking area that is nearby.
