Hoon trouble continues at Yarra’s Edge
Residents at Yarra’s Edge continue to be disturbed by hoon drivers following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, with cars leaving fresh burnout marks along Lorimer St last month.
Residents said that hoon activity had re- turned to precinct within 24 hours of the state govern-ment relaxing its five-kilometre travel restrictions on October 19.
The Yarra Action residents’ group, which formed last year in response to ongoing issues in its neighbourhood around car meet-ups near Point Park during weekends, shared photos of the incident the following day with local police and the City of Melbourne.
The images show that the vehicle barely missed the centre median strip on Lorimer St and residents are hoping that recently installed CCTV in the area will help identify those involved.
The incident follows a meeting in July between then Deputy Lord Mayor Arron Wood, the coun-cil’s manager of on-street compliance services Dean Robertson and Inspector Troy Papworth from Melbourne East Police Station and more than 50 local residents.
The council and local police continue to work with residents on a range of preventative measures. To report any issues email yarra. [email protected]
