Hooning



In case you don't know (and I certainly didn't) the word hoon has the following definition from Wikipedia:

Hoon is a term used in Australia and New Zealand, to refer to anyone who engages in loutish, anti-social behaviours. In particular, it is used to refer to one who drives a car or boat in a manner which is anti-social by the standards of contemporary society, i.e. too fast, too noisily or too dangerously.

The Toowoomba Chronicle reports that this is a problem on at least one street in town. For a full appreciation of what this is like, head over to the Chronicle and watch the video linked there for a really outlandish demonstration of wasting tire rubber and making noise.
