I reported a young hoon in a Gemini who lived 2 doors down.
I went into the local cop shop in person & gave them a list of dates & approximate times that he had done dangerous & stupid things. The cop sat down at the computer, looked up the details & then thanked me. He also told me they need more than one report before they will do anything, and he had already been noticed. Less than 10 minutes later (I'd only just put the car in the garage) a caged truck turned up out the front of his house. From what the next-door neighbour tells me, he took a real fright, and his driving style is now somewhat subdued.
I used to live next door to a HWP copper, and he would often tell me of local cars that were "on-notice" Apparently they had a whiteboard at the station with these details on it, and when one of these cars were spotted, they were to be given "extra attention"
I reckon you should report him, but do it in person to show you're serious. Turn up armed with a list like I did. From the sounds of his behavior, you probably won't be the first report, but the more evidence, the stronger the case, and the more likely they will pay him a visit. If they don't pay him a personal visit, at least they will know who to look out for.
My cars not on fire, that's just the tyres.
i rang and enquired today... They said i have to go down to the cop shop, and fill out about a zillion forms then i'll prolly have to go to court.
I don't have time for this sort of crap, so i guess im not gonna worry about it. Just wait for him to learn the hard way, when he wraps it around a telephone pole. P platers in dunnydores seem to have a liking to telephone poles, trees etc....
Are you serious????
What if in a week you find out that in fact he did wrap it around a pole or crashed in a family coming home from the royal show!!!!!!!!
How will you feel then?? It is unlikely that you'll have to go to court you proberly spoke to some lazy cop who couldn't be bothered with the paperwork.
A little drive down the the cop shop could save someones life and if he still persists after you reported it then at least you tried.
I reakon you should just forget it. Leave him alone, he will eventually get caught-killed-blow up his car,grow out of it etc.
If he hasnt done any harm to you why dob him in, there is nothing really wrong with laying a bit of rubber IMO.
If he racing around in populated areas/busy places were others could be at harm i dont agree with that however.
My car is powered by FORD 5.8
