Hoon sting

Melbourne Highway Patrol officers carried out a “large-scale” operation in Yarra’s Edge on November 30 targeting ongoing vehicle gatherings in the area.

Police conducted the operation from 3pm until 11pm in partnership with Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) officers, who set up testing bays in Hartley St to check vehicle sound emissions.

Highway Patrol units were in unmarked vehicles during the operation and identified and intercepted eight vehicles, directing them into the testing bays. Of the eight vehicles pulled in by the EPA, five were issued with fines over $800 for failing emissions tests while three were issued with warnings.

Highway Patrol officers have told Docklands News that the operation would be the “start of a few weekends of blitzing the area” and it is expected that EPA officers will join as part of a monthly operation.
