A vehicle used to conduct burnout activity was seized by police on Saturday (18 June 2022). 

During Saturday night, police received multiple calls about a group of vehicles engaging in burnout and street racing activity.  

A group of approximately 60 vehicles was located in Hume and burnout activity was observed by police. Multiple bystanders were present when the vehicle was driven in a dangerous manner.  

Officers from ACT Road Policing intercepted a red Holden Commodore that had been witnessed conducting burnouts in Tralee Street as its driver attempted to flee the scene. 

The vehicle was seized, and the 22-year-old driver will appear in court in July, charged with improper use of a motor vehicle. 

ACT Policing will continue to target hoon driving and anti-social behaviour on ACT roads. 

Anyone who has information relating to hoon driving (including dash-cam footage) is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
